Explanation

(This amendment adds $75,000 each year from the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grant for the Department of Social Services to contract with the Visions of Truth Community Development Corporation to support the Students Taking Responsibility in Valuing Education (STRIVE). STRIVE is an out-of-school suspension/dropout prevention program for assisting at-risk youth who are placed at a disadvantage due to academic failure, lack of pre-social skills and job readiness training. The program's focus is on educational attainment as a means of assisting youth in achieving and sustaining academic success.)
