The Governor’s Prevention Partnership, in collaboration with The State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), seeks qualified community organizations in all juvenile court districts across Connecticut to develop, support and sustain a youth mentoring approach as part of a statewide network to complement and enhance existing services for juveniles age 10-17 involved in JBCSSD. JBCSSD has contracted The Partnership to serve as the lead organization and fiduciary to manage and implement this statewide mentoring initiative for JBCSSD referred youth.
The Governor’s Prevention Partnership will serve as the lead organization/fiduciary on this project. The Partnership is seeking qualified community-based agencies to provide mentoring services in the Juvenile Justice Mentoring Network (JJMN).

It provides tips for the best ways to approach goal-setting, reviews common barriers and offers useful tools and resources.
According to the 2015 Connecticut’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey, we have seen a 15% reduction in underage drinking in the last 10 years. For us, that’s not good enough.

At EdCorpsCT, we believe in the power of young people to change the world, and that the idealism of young people is one of our nation’s most precious natural resources. Robert F. Kennedy once said that even the smallest acts of service create ripples of hope that spread through communities; we agree, and we know that ten months of full-time service is far more than a small act.
