Project Intercept pairs up early-stage at-risk youth individually with mentors. The Project will recruit mentors, train, and supervise them in working with (90) youth of the traditional Jewish community. Progress will be measured by the regular and timely attendance of the mentees, improvement in students' grades, and improvement in coming to school on a regular and timely basis. Project Intercept has launched a school-based mentoring program. In school-based mentoring, teachers identify youth who exhibit problems at school, and who could benefit from additional attention and guidance. These students are referred to the mentoring program. Project Intercept will report performance measures that include inproved attendance and improved academic performance.NCA/NCF
