In 2014, OJJDP awarded grants to a practitioner-researcher partnership to develop and evaluate new mentoring practices that serve the needs of youth whose biological parent, legal guardian, or informal primary caregiver is incarcerated in a prison or jail.
The target population includes:
- Children with a parent who is currently incarcerated.
- Children whose parent(s) has been incarcerated at some point during the child's lifetime.
