Excerpt
Foreword: A positive bond between a developing child and a nurturing adult pays rich dividends that can last a lifetime. With the growing erosion of family life and heavy demands on overburdened support systems, this attachment is increasingly problematic. When a child?s family is unable or unwilling to provide adequate supervision and support, a mentor can help fill this critical gap. In 1992, Congress responded to this need by amending the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 to establish the Juvenile Mentoring Program (JUMP). The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) supports 93 mentoring projects under JUMP, in addition to mentoring initiatives funded through our Formula Grants Program?nearly 300 in 1997 alone. This 1998 Report to Congress describes the initial stages of OJJDP?s ongoing evaluation of the 93 projects funded under JUMP and includes its preliminary findings, which are hopeful. Positive outcomes to date include reports from both mentors and youth that mentoring was a positive experience, and that youth benefitted from the experience, specifically in staying away from alcohol and drugs, avoiding fights and friends who are starting trouble, keeping away from gangs, and not using guns or knives.
