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 Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) has indicated that FY 2011 Title V funding will be used to continue prevention efforts for a third year in two existing Title V communities. Expected recipients of this continuation funding include the City of Seward, which implements evidence-based juvenile justice programming through its Boys & Girls Club program, and the Kenaitze Indian Tribe, which utilizes a culturally competent curriculum to develop life skills, promote academic achievement, and enhance respect for all people and cultures.
