Mentoring Children of Prisoners Statewide Projects: The Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) Administration on Children, Youth and Families' (ACYF) Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is accepting applications for the Mentoring Children of Prisoners (MCP) Program for statewide projects within the fifteen states with the highest populations of incarcerated persons. Additionally, applications are being accepted from Native American tribes and tribal entities that include one or more of the fifteen targeted states and may also include other states with high numbers of incarcerated Native Americans. This program supports the creation and maintenance of one-on-one mentoring relationships between children of incarcerated parents and caring, supportive adult volunteer mentors. The intent of this program is to support the establishment or expansion and operation of mentoring programs, using a network of public and private community entities, in states with substantial numbers of children of incarcerated parents. Within ACF, FYSB is developing integrated service delivery capacities (interoperability) among ACF-funded human services programs, including collaborations established by formal agreement with The Children's Bureau and The Office of Family Assistance, to identify MCP-eligible youth in order to expand the delivery of mentoring services and maximize positive outcomes for children, families and communities. The MCP program is designed to be a community-based mentoring program in which a child or youth age 4 up to age 18, is appropriately matched with an adult mentor, who has been screened and trained, for a one-on-one (one mentor/one youth), friendship-oriented (non curriculum-based) mentoring relationship.
