Grants are available to USA national organizations to provide evidence-based mentoring services to at-risk, high-risk, and underserved youth, 17 years or younger, in order to promote better behaviors, attitudes, and outcomes for this population. Organizations seeking to either establish a mentoring program or enhance an already existing one must operate according to one of the following categories:

One-on-One Mentoring where an adult (mentor) forms a mentoring relationship with a youth (mentee); Group Mentoring where an adult (mentor) forms a mentoring relationship with two or more youth (mentees); or Combined One-on-One and Group Mentoring where an adult (mentor) forms a mentoring relationship with a youth (mentee) and an adult (mentor) forms a mentoring relationship with two or more youth. OJJDP encourages applicants to target mentoring services and programs to youth with a parent in the military, including a deployed parent, and/or tribal youth. If targeting tribal youth, establishment of mentor/mentee relationships on tribal reservations/lands is encouraged.

Mentoring programs should support a structured relationship between an adult or trained peer and one or more youth. Mentoring promotes positive behaviors, attitudes, and outcomes for youth and reduces risk-factors. It has been shown to improve academic performance and/or social or job skills, support behavioral or other personal development, and reduce alcohol and other drug consumption. Successful mentoring programs include matches between a mentor and one or more youth; mentoring can take place in multiple and informal settings, as well as in a school or program context.

Up to 3 years.
