Ask Congress to Increase Funds for Mentoring
Congress has started the appropriations process for federal programs including the OJJDP Youth Mentoring Grant. In March, the White House released its budget request for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) suggesting a $37 million cut to this critical program. In the coming months, Congress will release its own recommendations for the Youth Mentoring Grant and we hope they use their power to increase funds for this program that makes an impact on so many young people.

The Grant is currently funded at $95 million, the mentoring movement is asking Congress to increase these funds to $120 million. You can make a difference by calling on your Members of Congress to close the mentoring gap in America today.
