Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a mentoring program for former foster youth between the ages of 18 and 25 years old. The goal was to identify potential funding sources and write a grant proposal to fund a mentoring program for emancipated foster youth. The program would focus on collaboration with mentors and mentees to improve the chances of positive outcomes for former foster youth. By providing guidance and support, this mentoring program is aimed at reducing negative outcomes due to inadequate education, criminal activities, economic hardship, and lack of emotional support for transitional youth who have emancipated from the foster care system. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
