Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $1,073,218)

With the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) FY08 Earmark funding, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska (BBBS) proposes to use the solid principles of focus, human capacity and community-based collaboration to increase its organizational capacity in an effort to provide professionally-supported one-to-one mentoring relationships for more rural and Alaska Native youth statewide. BBBS will double the number of rural and Alaska Native children it serves across the state from 800 to 1600 by 2011. To achieve this target, BBBS will develop and implement internal and external strategies to ensure that all services are culturally appropriate as well as consistently, efficiently and effectively administered. Through these efforts, BBBS aims to increase protective factors in many more at-risk rural and Alaska Native youth, leading to reductions in juvenile delinquency in this population. NCA/NCF
