C. 2019 Youth Mentoring Funding

The City of Madison Police Department, in partnership with Common Wealth Development Inc. and the City's Community Development Division, is seeking proposals to provide individualized and group youth mentoring services, focusing on middle and high school youth in West Madison. Funded activities and outcomes will  reduce crime and improve social conditions that contribute to crime. These programs will be funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice entitled "Our Neighborhood: A Safe and Beautiful Place". Several programs may be funded under this grant opportunity. Programs are expected to operate for at least 18 months between April 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020.


Mentoring programs will be required to follow guidelines and common principles set out in the "Elements of Effective Mentoring Practices", published by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. This document is in the public domain and available via the Department of Justice websites as a program of Office of juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Funded programs are expected to comply with regulations and requirements regarding data collection and reporting on funded activities. Funded projects will work closely with city and Common Wealth staff to develop systems and processes to address these requirements.
