The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a program that would provide peer mentorship to foster youth in Los Angeles County. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the plight of foster youth as well as the factors that contribute to their resilience. The grant writer then used the information to design a program that would benefit former foster youth as well as current foster youth. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and grant databases resulted in the selection of the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund as the best funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support a peer-mentoring program at the one of the Department of Children and Family Service's regional offices located in Lakewood California.
