Guam - The Department of Youth Affairs has high hopes to receive a nearly half-million dollar federal grant. The local agency has submitted a new federal grant application to the Guam State Clearinghouse requesting $406,459 from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Funds from this grant will be used to support and expand local mentoring services by engaging youth offenders with positive relationships that promote healthy behaviors.

Mentoring services will include individual and group activities, education and job readiness and other skills-building activities in an effort to decrease recidivism rates of juvenile offenders.
