The Improving Tomorrow: Prevention Focused Mentoring (IT:PFM) Grant provides support to ten community and school-based youth mentoring programs selected through a Request for Proposal process. These programs support mentee/mentor matches that meet year round. All mentoring programs support the state's goal of primary prevention of use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) as well as problem gambling. Programs follow the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring established by the National Mentoring Partnership and will obtain certification through the Iowa Mentoring Partnership.
