Department of Justice Youth Mentoring Initiative Supports Military Youth and Families
The Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) awarded $20M to nine youth-serving organizations to support mentoring programs and services for youth with a parent in the military. This first of its kind initiative aims to build community resilience by providing structured and trusted relationships that bring young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement. Selected organizations will support children and youth of AD, Guard and Reserve families; children of the wounded, ill or injured; and children of military veterans. Quality mentoring programs strengthen the Department's support for military youth and provide opportunities to fill gaps in programs and services across the country and around the world. USAF Youth Programs has a long standing partnership with two of the recipients of these grants - Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the National 4-H Council.
