Please follow all instructions
below.Program Objectives:The Public Affairs Section at the U. S. Embassy in Amman is soliciting proposals that address the rehabilitation and reintegration needs of youth who come in close contact with the law, with a special emphasis on those recently released from juvenile detention centers or prisons in Jordan.Program goals are to increase opportunities for formerly incarcerated youth ages, 15-30, to address their social and emotional needs as well improve their career and job skills to enable them to become constructive members of society.
Multi-stakeholder approaches that bring together or coordinate the actions of central and local government or law enforcement as well as civil society, religious communities, academia, the private sector, and other groups are encouraged.
All proposals should include a digital media plan to amplify the results of the program, such as by sharing participant testimonials through podcasts or webisodes, to serve as a public awareness and prevention tool.Priority programming areas include:• Designing comprehensive psycho-social and mental health interventions within local communities for recently released youth and their families to build social cohesion and reduce stigma following incarceration;• Creating opportunities to improve the life skills and career training offered to formerly incarcerated youth to support their successful re-entry and reintegration into society and reduce recidivism.
