Contra Costa Kops for Kids Youth Mentoring Program
Peace Officers Helping Kids
The Kops For Kids Youth Mentoring Program provides grants of up to $250 for an individual child, or up to $1,000 for a team of four or more. The grants are to pay for activities fees and expenses for the youngsters.
Grants are paid to active or retired law enforcement officers who volunteer their time to mentor the youth.
In the past ten years more than $100,000 in grants have been issued to officers throughout Contra Costa County. This year we will again budget $20,000 for grants.
A brochure and application is available from the organization. Applications are accepted until April 1st for funding in the following fiscal year from 1 July to 30 June.
