The program’s goal is to improve outcomes (such as improved academic performance and reduced school dropout rates) for at-risk and system-involved youth, and reduce negative outcomes (including juvenile delinquency, substance use, and gang participation) through mentoring.

This program supports the implementation and delivery of one-on-one, group, peer, or a combination of these types of mentoring services to youth populations that are at risk for juvenile delinquency, victimization, and juvenile justice system involvement through applicant mentoring organizations and their active chapters or subawardees. This program also supports enhancements to both improve access to and the impact of mentoring services.
