The Department of Justice (DOJ) has released a solicitation --

The President's Initiative, My Brother’s Keeper, is a call to action to invest in collaborative, multi-disciplinary approaches to build ladders of opportunity and unlock the full potential of boys and young men of color. The Department of Justice's, Office of Justice Programs’, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s, Multi-State Mentoring program responds to this call and includes mentoring opportunities for young men and boys of color in order to build resilience, encourage empowerment, and facilitate community engagement and participation.

 This DOJ solicitation supports qualified, established mentoring organizations as they strengthen and/or expand their existing mentoring activities within local chapters or subawardees. Mentoring activities include direct one-on-one, group, or peer mentoring services for at-risk and underserved youth populations. Successful applicants should implement programs that will recognize and address the factors that can lead to or serve as a catalyst for delinquency or other problem behaviors in underserved youth. Expansion of mentoring activities should create new opportunities for mentee achievement.
