Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $100,000)

The OJJDP FY 10 Earmarks Program furthers 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 Conference Report to accompany the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (P.L. 111-117), H.R. Conf. Rep. No. 111-366 at 702-714.

The Bardavon program addresses juvenile risk factors with strength-based interventions supporting the protective factors of commitment to school and opportunities for pro-social involvement in school, family and community. This program provides up to six different in-school arts-in-education workshop residencies for approximately 800 at-risk students in fourteen schools in Poughkeepsie, NY and Kingston, NY. These two mid-Hudson Valley cities are urban centers and their county's seat. Each residency will conclude with a culmination including a performance or appearance in a street festival created by the students in collaboration with their Teaching Artist. The students' progress will be measured by tracking changes in school attendance, behavior, work standards, and youth self-assessment in a pre- and post-program evaluation tool to be completed by the students and their classroom teachers.
