Project New Pride: Replication.
National Inst. for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (Dept. of Justice/LEAA), Washington, DC.
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, is establishing a new discretionary grant program entitled Replication of Project New Pride: A Serious Offender Youth Treatment Program. Project New Pride was chosen for replication because of its demonstrated effectiveness in Denver, Colorado, where it kept serious offenders in the community, reduced recidivism rates, improved academic abilities, found youth employment, and reduced their incarceration. Funds for this replication program are being allocated under the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 and the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974. Applicants for federal aid under this program must meet the following requirements: (1) serve a target population age 14 to 17 residing in areas of serious juvenile crime, under court supervision, and with records of multiple serious offenses in the past two years; (2) be implemented by private nonprofit youth-serving agencies; (3) have demonstrated experience in delivery and management of community-based treatment programs for youth; and (4) have signed written cooperative agreements with the judicial system, schools of higher education and organizations and agencies for provision of job training and placement, and alternative and special education. (Besides application guidelines, this document provides application forms and the addresses to which they must be sent for approval.) (ELG)
