ECTION 63-19-1430. Youth Mentor Act 2.0.

(A) This section may be cited as the "Youth Mentor Act”. .”

(B) The Attorney General's Office shall establish a Youth Mentor Program to serve juvenile offenders under the jurisdiction of the family court. The program shall consist of a church mentor program and a community mentor program. Participation in the program may be required as a pretrial diversion option by a solicitor or as an optional, alternative disposition by a family court judge. The circuit solicitor may charge a juvenile offender who participates in the Youth Mentor Program a fee to offset the actual cost of administering the program; however, no juvenile offender is barred from the program because of indigence. This program must be available for juveniles who commit nonviolent offenses. For purposes of this subsection, nonviolent offenses mean all offenses not listed in Section 16-1-60.

The Attorney General must establish guidelines for the program, community and educational institutions, the mentors, and the churches, mosques, masjids, synagogues, and other religious organizations that participate in the church mentor program.

The Attorney General must appoint all public and private colleges, universities, technical and vocational schooling to establish these programs.

Upon graduation from the programs, if the child completes the program in good standing, then the Department of Education shall grant a scholarship to the child that would provide educational aid in a way that is fit for that child. Community partners and sponsors can voluntarily provide aid as well. The Department of Education shall determine the amount of this aid.

The child shall have to maintain educational and behavioral standards in order to maintain his or her scholarship, which shall be predetermined by the Department of Education.

Participation in church or religious organizations should not be limited to collegiate, trade, or technical school. The mentee should be able to receive education from a further established college, technical, trade school or mentoring program that would allow them, during and post detention, to further their education at that school and create a better life for themselves.

(C) When a child is charged with a nonviolent offense which places him under the jurisdiction of the family court and the solicitor is of the opinion that justice would be better served if the child completed a church mentor program, the solicitor may divert the child to such a program. Upon completion of the program, the proceedings in family court must be dismissed.

Participation in the church mentor program is voluntary, and the child or his parents or guardians may refuse to participate based upon their religious beliefs or for any other reason.

(D) When a child is adjudicated delinquent for a nonviolent offense in family court, the family court judge may order the child to participate in the community mentor program.When a child is adjudicated delinquent for a nonviolent or violent offense in family court, the family court judge and Attorney General may order the child to participate in the community mentor program. This would include the respective schoolings and passions this child would pursue. When a child is ordered to participate in the community mentor program, he must be assigned to a community organization that shall assign a mentor to the child. The mentor shall monitor the academic and personal development of the child for a minimum period of six months and a maximum period not exceeding one year as ordered by the court. That mentor should monitor and coach for plus 1 year if the monitor and mentor feel that it is necessary with guidance of the courts. Failure to complete the program shall result in the child being brought before the family court for appropriate sanctions or revocation of suspended commitment.

(E) The Attorney General must establish guidelines for the program, the mentors, and the community organizations that participate in the community mentor program. The County Judge and Attorney General must establish guidelines for the program with a parent, guardian, or legal parental guardian to ensure the child complies with program requirements.

If the juvenile poses a threat of serious harm to himself or others, they will be removed from the program and may re-enter after further consideration from the court that appeals.”
