Who We Serve
The NB3 Foundation serves Native American youth who are mainly low-income and suffer from or are at risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes. NB3’s model sports, health and leadership programs will benefit Native American youth in targeted communities in New Mexico and throughout the United States who are in need of resources, programming and education and training to foster long-term change in the health and wellness of Native American youth. NB3 Programs also promote parent and community involvement—a critical factor for long-term success in achieving the health and well-being of Native youth. This year, new special nutrition and diabetes education initiatives through our NB3 Health and Wellness Program will target women and parents in the effort to empower parents and families to lead healthier lifestyles.
