Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $50,000)

The OJJDP FY 09 Earmarks Programs further the Department's mission by providing grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, to organizations identified in the Explanatory Statement Regarding H.R. 1105 (Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009), 155 Cong. Rec. H1653 (daily ed. Feb. 23, 2009) (statement by Rep. Obey, Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations of the House).

Hispanic Brotherhood will provide group educational sessions with staff and recruit speakers from outside entities such as the Department of Social Services, the Nassau County Youth Board, the Rockville Centre Police Department, the District Attorney's office, and local hospitals. Hispanic Brotherhood has an ongoing relationship with area school districts, from which we can also recruit counselors. The effectiveness of the educational sessions will be measured through the use of pre and post participation surveys and feedback from participants. Currently Hispanic Brotherhood provides transportation for students from the Rockville Centre and Oceanside School Districts as well as from one Baldwin school. This will facilitate participation of students from these districts. NCA/NCF
