The Mentoring Programs discretionary grant competition makes awards to local educational agencies, nonprofit community-based organizations, and partnerships between the two, to promote school-based mentoring programs for children with greatest need. These projects seek to assist children in receiving support and guidance from a mentor; improve their academic achievement; improve interpersonal relationships with their peers, teachers, other adults, and family members; reduce their rate of dropping out of school; and reduce levels of juvenile delinquency and involvement in gangs.

Programs must serve children with the greatest need in grades 4 – 8 that reside in rural or high crime areas or troubled environments, or who attend schools with violence problems. Applicants receiving awards under this program have developed projects that link children with mentors who will receive ongoing training and support in mentoring, and have been screened using appropriate background checks.

Projects are designed to achieve one or more of the following goals: (1) assist these children in receiving support and guidance from a mentor; (2) improve the academic performance of the children; (3) improve interpersonal relationships between the children and their peers, teachers, other adults, and family members; (4) reduce the dropout rate of the children; and (5) reduce the children’s juvenile delinquency and involvement in gangs.
