1 recipient will receive $197,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Code: 127
Description: Liberty's Promise intends to contribute to the long-term goal of gang reduction by giving 50 immigrant adolescents an outlet for professional growth and a chance to more thoroughly understand American political culture. The project will support documented immigrant youth in need, ages 15-21, by placing them in 8- to 10-week internships in government, the media, for-profit and non-profit businesses throughout the Washington, DC, Metro Area. At the conclusion of the internship, these adolescents will take part in a civics course designed to reinforce values of responsibility and the citizen's participation in the community. The project coordinator will use a series of pre- and post-participation evaluative tools to measure the effectiveness of the project and report these findings to OJJDP via GMS.
