Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $223,587)
The goal of Project Intercept is to identify youth who display early-stage problems and intercept these youth from the path they seem to be taking to help them onto a more socially acceptable path instead. Project Intercept pairs up early-stage at-risk youth individually with mentors. The Project will recruit mentors and will train and supervise them in working with the 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 school attendance on a regular and timely basis.
