The JAMS Foundation supports programs that advance the development, implementation, and/or assessment of conflict prevention and resolution strategies. Programs should focus on service to youth in families whose integrity is jeopardized by changes in the social environment that can lead to gang involvement. Programs should also focus on changes in the social environment which impact: 

•Family composition

•Home location

•Education

•Trauma

•Addiction

•Violence 

•Perpetual unresolved conflict

•Prison

•Economic challenges

•Access to efficient, effective and responsive education, justice, opportunity, or conflict prevention/resolution services 

Programs may leverage what existing agencies are already doing, but should specifically aim to integrate the development of conflict resolution training, education or services to help address individual (e.g., youth, family, service provider) impact, institutional (e.g. Criminal Justice System, Public/Subsidized Housing, School) impact, and environmental conditions. Projects should focus on forming and fostering the relationships between each of the individual area, youth, family, service provider and one of the institutions in the area and one of the environmental condition, to ensure that future decision points integrate the learning that took place related to constructive conflict engagement.

The populations served should be a youth in pre-K to 12th grade age range, adults serving in the parental role for those youth, and working with those youth populations in ways that directly transfer conflict prevention and resolution skills to address conflict. Priority will be given to conflict prevention/resolution education programs that focus on reducing, through improved conflict prevention/resolution skills, the impact of risk factors such as separation, loss, abandonment, or gender/cultural/religious/racial identity crisis facilitated by the environmental condition of focus and that may lead to gang membership. Priority will also be given to projects in which youth play a significant or substantive role in the delivery of the process. Priority for projects that help to develop youth leadership skills by getting young people involved in helping themselves. Finally, priority is given to projects that arise from the grassroots efforts, comprised of a strong base of diverse stakeholders, who are representative of the community of youth being served to supplement or provide additional capacity for the community’s efforts. 

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range between $15,000 and $40,000.

Eligibility: Eligible organizations include nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, educational institutions, and public agencies working in conjunction with nonprofit educational institutions or organizations.
