Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a recidivism program for delinquent foster youth. The goals are to help them: (a) process and work through their experiences and foster care status; (b) increase their self-awareness, self-esteem and self-perception; (c) constructively identify their weaknesses and undesirable behaviors, (d) develop an individual treatment plan and set short term and long term goals; (e) increase their social, emotional and academic skills; and (f) strengthen resilience and empower other foster youth in group settings. It is hoped that this program will assist in reducing recidivism among youth in foster care by addressing the issue from a holistic strengths based approach. A comprehensive literature review was conducted. Potential funding sources were researched and evaluated and the Ronya and George Kozmetsky (RGK) Foundation was selected. The proposed intervention is detailed with an evaluation plan, staffing information, and budget narrative. The actual submission of the grant proposal was not required for the completion of the project.
