Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $84,945)

This program intends to reduce risks and enhance protective factors to prevent at-risk youth from entering the juvenile justice systems and to intervene with first-time and non-serious offenders to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.

The Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) issued a solicitation to local units of government to implement or expand youth summer programs to reduce the likelihood that youth will engage in negative or delinquent behavior due to unstructured "free time". The State will utilize FY 2010 Title V funds to support five projects through units of local government.
