OJJDP Awards $10.75 Million to BBBSA for Youth Mentoring

On October 21, 2019, Office of Justice Programs Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Katharine T. Sullivan announced OJJDP awards of almost $11 million to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America during a press event at the Tampa Police Department. Funding will support youth mentoring in Florida and nationwide. "Much of that funding will be used to mentor kids caught up in the opioid crisis, which has destroyed far too many lives and left too many young people feeling helpless and hopeless," said Sullivan.
