Second Chance Act Juvenile Mentoring Initiative

Type: Federal
Source: U.S Dept. Of Justice
Program: Second Chance Act Juvenile Mentoring Initiative
Eligibility: OJJDP invites applications from public agencies, including state agencies, units of local government (including federally-recognized Indian tribal governments as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), public universities and colleges (including tribal institutions of higher education), and private, nonprofit organizations (including faith-based, tribal, and community organizations).

Joint applications from two or more eligible applicants are welcome; however, one applicant must be clearly indicated as the primary applicant (for correspondence, award, and management purposes) and the others indicated as co-applicants.

Targeted youth must be admitted to the program prior to their 18th birthday. However, a reentry plan can continue to be implemented for these individuals beyond their 18th birthday. OJJDP does not have a set timeline for terminating these services, but instead they can continue as long as is deemed therapeutically necessary.
Purpose: The Purpose Of This Initiative Is To Support The Successful And Safe Transition Of Juvenile Offenders From Correctional Facilities To Their Communities. To This End, OJJDP Will Provide Funding To Develop, Implement, And Expand Mentoring Programs And Transitional Services. OJJDP Expects Successful Applicants To Integrate Best Practices And Proven Principles Into Mentoring Service Models, Develop Strategies To Recruit And Maintain Mentors, And Assess And Develop Services To Respond To The Needs Of Youth Offenders Reentering Their Communities. Local Community Collaboratives Should Lead Such Programs, Design Them To Address Local Needs, And Use Local Resources. If Local Resources Are Not Available, The Program Should Obtain Resources Outside Of The Community Through Partnerships And Other Collaborative Efforts.
