Grants to USA organizations in multiple States, Washington,D.C., and Puerto Rico that are currently working to rehabilitate youth who have been involved in the juvenile justice system. Eligible applicants can propose to provide military-style training, supervised work settings, and mentorship programs to these youth in order to reduce recidivism and help them re-enter their communities.
Specifically, eligible applicants will have continuously operated a National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program for the past five years, and be currently operating a National Guard Youth ChalleNGe. This opportunity will:
1) Test the effectiveness of expanding the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program for youth who have come in contact with the juvenile justice system for committing a status offense or a delinquent act (court-involved youth), and
2) Add and test an additional job training component (DOL Job ChalleNGe) to the program for court-involved youth and youth that have had no contact with the juvenile justice system (non-court-involved youth).
Court-involved youth are highly at-risk of not being successful in the workforce and have high rates of recidivism. State funding across the country for educational and workforce development services for court-involved youth have historically been very limited.
DOL is funding this demonstration pilot to test strategies used by the Department of Defense (DOD) Youth ChalleNGe program to improve the workforce outcomes of this most at-risk population.
The DOL Job ChalleNGe is to be part of the comprehensive National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program in which program participants, referred to as Cadets, receive military-based training, engage in supervised work experience, and complete eight core program components, during a six-month residential phase conducted on an active or closed National Guard base, training center, or school campus. The National Guard Youth ChalleNGe is operated by the National Guard Bureau and funded through a National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Cooperative Agreement
Under this grant, and upon completion of the six-month residential phase, each Cadet will be matched with a mentor to help him or her prepare to re-enter community life during a 12-month mentorship phase. The 12-month mentorship phase will be non-residential, except for those Cadets who, at the start of the 12-month mentorship phase, elect to enroll in the five-month residential DOL Job ChalleNGe in order to receive additional vocational services.

Up to $4,000,000 which will fund the planning period and the five-month residential DOL Job ChalleNGe phase. However, the six-month residential phase of the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program must be funded with funds obligated under the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Cooperative Agreement.
The period of performance is 42 months with an anticipated start date of May 30, 2015.
