Juvenile-based services for prevention, control, or reduction of juvenile delinquency - STOP the Violence Program.

1 recipient will receive $222,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Code: 75
Description: This project will focus on the continued expansion of STOP the Violence Program and will be accomplished through the successful network of FCCLA members and advisers already established in communities throughout the nation. FCCLA has more than 220,000 members in 7,200 rural, suburban, and urban chapters in all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. FCCLA promotes leadership experiences and student decision-making opportunities through the Family and Consumer Sciences Education program. Teams of local FCCLA members and adult advisers who are trained to conduct STOP the Violence in their FCCLA chapters direct the project. Training for local leaders is delivered during experiential events designed to enable and empower students toward action. Training provides participants with skills, attitudes, and resources necessary to reduce school violence and bullying. As concepts are introduced, young people identify problems, explore solutions, and develop action plans for their local schools and communities. This grassroots approach is a key component of STOP the Violence. Just as youth violence issues and crime rates vary from community to community, so must prevention efforts vary, and be adapted to each specific situation by the young people most influenced by the problem.
