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.
