2010 Mentoring Grants from OJJDP
You might consider applying for new mentoring grants from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). To "reduce juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, truancy, and other problem and high-risk behaviors," OJJDP wants to
enhance the capacity and effectiveness of established mentoring programs by: (1) augmenting the involvement of and services for the mentoring participants' parents; (2) expanding structured activities and opportunities for the mentors and mentoring participant(s); and (3) increasing the availability of ongoing mentor training and support.
Programs can use the grant to accomplish one or more of those three things. Awards will fall between $200,000 and $500,000 for 18 to 36 months. Application deadline is April 14, 2010.
