Mentoring Research Partners Program
This solicitation aims to support research and evaluation efforts that inform the development and implementation of effective mentoring practices to prevent and intervene in youth delinquency, thereby advancing the Department of Justice's priority to prevent and reduce crime. With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks applicants who wish to partner with mentoring programs that were funded by OJJDP under its FY 2016 or FY 2017 Mentoring Opportunities for Youth Initiative or its FY 2017 Mentoring for Child Victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Domestic Sex Trafficking Initiative to conduct project-specific, independent program evaluations and/or data analyses. This solicitation aims to help individual mentoring programs improve their effectiveness. Findings may also be disseminated to other OJJDP mentoring programs and integrated into OJJDP program planning.
