In the Spring of 1992 the National Indian Youth Leadership Project developed a Basic Wilderness Search and Rescue Skills Training Program, trained a group of high school volunteers in wilderness SAR skills, and founded a search and rescue team in Zuni, New Mexico that is officially recognized by the state. This program was developed out of the NIYLP 's pro-active approach to substance abuse programming, and the idea of service leadership. Based on the process of habilitation, the program addresses the need far youth to interact with viable role models, to see themselves as a part of something larger, and to see themselves as capable individuals.
