Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $100,000)
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).
The Boys and Girls Club of Rosebud will provide prevention education to three cohorts representing distinct age-groups as well as education for a parent cohort. This is a comprehensive curriculum that includes instruction, skill building, parent involvement, and community support. The national office provides training but not funds for implementation. Since The Boys and Girls Clubs of Rosebud is a newly chartered organization (as of December 19, 2004), it was the decision of the organization's leadership to initiate as soon as possible a structured alcohol/drug prevention program as a way to signal to the community and youth and parents that the B&GCR has prioritized the promotion of alcohol-and-drug-free lifestyles for the Sicangu Lakota youth. The Tribal Youth Program will help fund the implementation of the curriculum with supporting activities for the youth participants. NCA/NCF
