Governor's Prevention Partnership, in collaboration with the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), has released a Request for Proposals and is seeking a qualified community-based agency to provide mentoring services in the Danbury Juvenile Court District as part of the Juvenile Justice Mentoring Network (JJMN). The community-based mentoring program should have a history of providing mentoring services to youth (ages 10 – 17) involved in JBCSSD or impacted by the juvenile justice system, and a commitment to implementing quality-based mentoring programs.
The Partnership serves as the lead organization/fiduciary on this project.

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. Too many of our youth continue to deal with issues of drug use, family alcoholism, bullying and child abuse. It’s time for a change.
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.
The State of Mentoring in CT
In 2015, The Partnership surveyed mentoring programs statewide to provide an updated picture of mentoring in Connecticut. This brief report highlights the status of mentoring in the state, updated information on the challenges mentoring providers face serving youth in our state and the importance of continued support for mentoring as a strategy to help at-risk youth.
Bullying is one of the most widespread and under reported problems within our schools and communities. We're working to fix that.
