Description

With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to enhance and expand mentoring services for children and youth impacted by opioids and other substance misuse. This program supports mentoring programs to reduce juvenile delinquency, substance misuse, and problem and high-risk behaviors such as truancy. 

This program supports the implementation and delivery of mentoring services to youth who are currently misusing or dependent on substances (including opioids, stimulants, and other licit or illicit substances), youth at risk for misusing substances, and youth with family members who are currently misusing or dependent on substances. Mentoring services can be one-to-one, group, peer, or a combination.
