Request for Proposals: Disability Mentoring Initiative
NOVEMBER 7, 2017
Partners for Youth with Disabilities, an OJJDP Mentoring Opportunities for Youth Initiative grantee, has issued a request for proposals from nonprofit organizations to become subawardees within its Disability Mentoring Initiative.
Youth with disabilities are at extremely high risk for involvement in the juvenile justice system. A critical need exists for youth with disabilities to have access to positive role models. Mentoring continues to be regarded as a highly successful program model for improving the lives of at-risk youth. Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD) seeks to add 1-2 new collaborators.
The initiative is a collaborative mentoring partnership to improve outcomes for at-risk youth with disabilities through expanded, high-quality, and evidence-based mentoring programming.
