The purpose of this project was to design a pilot program, identify a potential funding source, and develop a grant that identifies the need for, mental health services for at-risk youth from Youth Mentoring Connection (YMC) in Los Angeles urban communities. The YMC provides free of cost mentoring services for at-risk youth ages 12-18. The literature revealed that youth who experience trauma and are exposed to community violence are at higher risk of manifesting mental health distress that if untreated can result in chronic mental health problems later in life. The designed program titled Worthy of Recovery Through Hope (WORTH) serves the purpose of the expansion of the current existing counseling services at YMC. The WORTH program aims to provide accessible mental health services for YMC mentees such as individual and family therapeutic services as well as support groups, parenting groups and access to community resources services. The implementation of WORTH will result in providing mental health interventions and empower mentees to set realistic gods and become role models among their peers. The identified funding source for the WORTH program is the Weingart Foundation. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
