Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $300,000)

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 purpose of the project is to provide an after school academic, sports and enrichment program to 75 juveniles attending the Wyandanch Public School District's middle school. The program will also consist of a summer recreational/enrichment component. These activities are designed to improve the student's academic and social development, thus assisting with the improvement of the academic performance of students and decreases in delinquent behaviors, sexual activities, and victimization of students. Students will also be provided with resources to make healthy life style choices. Academic progress will be measured by interviews with site staff, observation of programs, review of standardized test scores, school attendance, and demographics. Social development progress will be measured by review of attendance and participant follow-up data. Other data collected will include: interviews with program staff; surveys of youth to include information on sexual knowledge, sexual behavior, contraceptive use, health-related knowledge and behavior, educational outcomes and opinions, and delinquency/drug-use behavior; and pretests and posttests on knowledge related to sexuality topics.
