Project Summary for 1999-JG-FX-0056

The Columbia Villa/Tamarack JUMP Project is designed to build on the demonstrated success of this effort by translating the core philosophy and prevention orientation to the volunteer mentoring rrelationship. The infusion of mentoring resources will allow expansion of existing prevention efforts to a wider population of youth ages 8 to 13 and will assure the realization of the primary goal in resiliency-based intervention and the establishment of a one to one caring relationship between a caring adult and an at risk youth.

The mentoring project is designed as an afterschool, community-based, year round program reaching at-risk African American, Latino, multi-cultural, Caucasian and immigrant low-income children. The program will serve children 8-13 providing them with social skills training activities, tutorial assistance concentrating in math and reading skills, and family communication skills focusing on respectful listening and offering feedback in a respectful manner.
