Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) will continue three major Girl Scouts initiatives that address specific problems that present challenges to girls today. Girl Scouts Beyond Bars (GSBB) provides opportunities for girls to maintain and strengthen relationships with their incarcerated mothers. Girl Scouting in Detention Centers (GSDC) brings Girl Scouting to girls in detention centers, as a positive alternative to the lure of gang involvement, drugs and a life of delinquency. P.A.V.E the Way - Project Anti-Violence Education (PAVE) teaches girls how to reduce their vulnerability to violence (i.e. becoming a victim of a crime or a perpetrator of violent behavior). OJJDP funds will be used to make 40-60 grants of up to $25,000 to councils to implement GSBB, GSDC and PAVE programs.
