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 primary purpose of Abraham House's After School Program is to provide academic support, arts enrichment, and youth development activities to at-risk children. The target population is children with a direct link to incarceration and children with societal challenges that put them at risk for juvenile delinquency and criminal activity. The program gives children the skills they need to complete high school, pursue higher education or vocational training, and stay free of juvenile delinquency. The program runs for 40 weeks during the academic year and for an additional seven weeks in the summer.

Progress will be measured by the number of students who are academically promoted to the next grade, the number of students who show improvements on report cards, the number of youth who remain free of criminal activity, and by attendance in the program. NCA/NCF
