(This amendment provides $250,000 from the general fund in the second year to the "Front Line Total Mentoring Demonstration Project Initiative for Disadvantaged and At-Risk Youth" in the Greater Prince William and Stafford County (GPWSC) Region. This project addresses the critical need for collaboration between schools, faith-based and other service organizations. Without assistance, many youth are vulnerable to educational failure, adverse juvenile behavior, juvenile crime, truancy, delinquency, gang participation, and pregnancy.)
