Request for Proposals

Community Based Traditional Mentoring and Youth Advocate Services

for Youth Involved in the Juvenile Justice System

The Connecticut Juvenile Justice Mentoring Network

Announced: September 9, 2019


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 serves as the lead organization/fiduciary on this project, which will create a total of 47 new mentor/mentee matches: 4 traditional volunteer and 43 youth advocate matches statewide. The Partnership is seeking qualified community-based agencies to provide mentoring services in the Juvenile Justice Mentoring Network (JJMN). These community-based mentoring programs across Connecticut should have a history of providing mentoring services to youth involved or impacted by the juvenile justice system, and a commitment to implementing quality-based mentoring programs.
