Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $50,000)

The Title V Community Prevention Grants 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 Hawaii Department of Human Services, Office of Youth Services (OYS) is the designated state agency responsible for overseeing and administering the Title V program in Hawaii. OYS intends to fund one county, through a competitive bid process, to provide community prevention programs for youth below the age of 18. The program development and implementation would add or enhance positive youth development activities that creates an environment to reduce, if not eliminate, at-risk behaviors in communities that lack adequate prevention programs/services. Program areas in delinquency prevention, mentoring, and school programs are anticipated for implementation within the community of a county. These program areas will be measured through quarterly reports that include number of youth successfully completing the program; number of youth who offend or reoffend; number of youth who exhibit a desired change in targeted behavior, and other related output and outcome performance measures. The goals and objectives of the program are to prevent or decrease risky behaviors and to improve and strengthen families. NCA/NCF
