Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $150,000)

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 Chino Experience Teen Center is to decrease juvenile delinquency by identifying at-risk youth, reducing the rate of truancy, and increasing the number of youth participating in structured, after school programs. The target population to be served is the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) area, predominately located in downtown Chino. The focus will be to collaborate with partners to identify youth who demonstrate the following at-risk behaviors: low academic performance; truancy; behavior problems; low risk juvenile offenses; and economic disadvantagement. These youth will be assessed by a case manager, and referred to appropriate programs to get them involved in structured activities. Progress towards these goals will be measured by the number of youth identified, the number of youth involved in after school programs and other structured activities, an increase in grade point average, and a decrease in unexcused absences and truancy.
