"17. The Special Friends Project, $25,000 in the second year."

(This amendment provides funding the second year for the Special Friends Project which pairs boys of middle school age with professional men in a mentoring program. The mentors serve as role models, sharing their experience with the young men to help them develop self-esteem, communication and leadership skills, and educational and career goals. The intent of the program is to educate the youth to cope with the risky situations they face due to their environment, peers, and family pressures. It targets youth living in public housing communities.)
