The Consolidated Youth Program provides a unique opportunity for communities to increase collaboration among non-profit victim service providers; violence prevention, and children (0-10), youth (11-18), young adults (19-24) and men-serving organizations; tribes and tribal governments; local government agencies; schools; and programs that support men’s role in combating sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
All applicants must establish meaningful partnerships with community organizations and/or agencies that possess the appropriate cultural or community relevant expertise and experience to adequately address sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, including experience in prevention and intervention response for children, youth, young adults and non-abusing parents.
In FY 2016, funds under the Consolidated Youth Program may be used for the following two purposes:
1. Develop, expand, and strengthen prevention strategies and intervention services that target children, youth and/or young adults who are victims of and/or exposed to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, including support for non-abusing parents and caretakers. (required)
A. Prevention strategies may include: bystander intervention, peer to peer education, parent/guardian education, and community or public awareness campaigns.
B. Intervention must include direct advocacy and counseling services. Other services may include, but are not limited to: home visitation, emergency shelter, transitional housing, mental health services, legal advocacy, mentoring, educational support, and transportation.
2. Develop and implement public education campaigns, community organizing activities, and/or prevention strategies focusing on engaging men and male youth as leaders and role models. Activities should develop, maintain or enhance programs that work with men to prevent sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking by helping men serve as role models and social influencers of other men and youth at the individual, school or community levels.
