$10,000 Mentoring Grant
January 15th, 2012
With 2012 approaching, the office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has awarded our Seidman Club a $10,000 mentoring grant to ring in the New Year. Twenty young males will partner with volunteer mentors from local schools, churches, fraternities, the Civil Air Patrol, and the Grand Rapids Police Department. Joint mentoring relationships will offer Club members and caring adults the opportunity to discuss positive choices and academics. Fitting together like pieces of a puzzle, both factors contribute to the success of area youth. At Seidman, Unit Director Mike Remo hopes that through funding, 75% of participants will root themselves into making better choices and academically shine in the New Year.
