    AN ACT relating to youth crime prevention education.

    Be it enacted by the People of  the  State  of  Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section  1.  Short  title.   This Act may be cited as the
Youth Crime Prevention Consortium Act.

    Section    5.  Educational     consortium;     formation.
Notwithstanding  any  other  law of this State, a university,
college, or community college  that  is  an  "institution  of
higher  learning"  (as  that term is defined in Section 10 of
the Higher Education Student Assistance Act) and that  has  a
campus  located in the same county as a campus of one or more
other such institutions of higher learning may join with  any
of  such  other  institutions  of  higher  learning to form a
consortium that operates to supply an  educational  component
to  a youth crime prevention program or programs organized by
local communities in the county in which the institutions  of
higher learning that form the consortium are located.

    Section   10.  Authorized   curriculum.   An  educational
consortium established  under  this  Act  shall  develop  and
implement a curriculum that offers one or more courses that a
student at an institution of higher learning participating in
the  consortium  may  enroll in for academic credit from that
institution.  The course  or  courses  shall  be  offered  in
disciplines  normally  associated  with  young  people, their
families, or the criminal justice system, and as part of each
such course the student shall be required  to  provide  adult
mentoring  and leadership to community youth during informal,
safe opportunities organized by and in the local  communities
as part of their youth crime prevention programs.
