OJJDP funding has enabled us to build three key programs that serve girls in non-traditional settings. The first, Girl Scouts Beyond Bars, facilitates prison visits for girls who have mothers in prison, to establish and strengthen the mother-daughter bond. The second, Girl Scouts in Detention Centers, gives girls in Detention Centers a chance to participate in Girl Scouting as a way of boosting their self-esteem and confidence. The third is P.A.V.E. (Project Anti-Violence Education) the Way which is teaching girls how to reduce their involvement in violent behavior.
