Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal is to obtain funding for the creation of an after school program for at-risk youth of underserved populations. The literature review increased knowledge about the problem behaviors exhibited by at-risk youth that may interfere with positive behaviors, academic achievement, and overall well-being. The problem behaviors are, but not limited to, risky sexual behaviors at a premature age, drug use, aggressiveness, defiance, detachment from school, lack of supervision, and behaviors that may be linked to mental health issues. An extensive search for a potential funder resulted in the Annenberg Foundation. The Annenberg Foundation has funded many projects that involve the education and development of youth. A grant proposal was written to support the population served by Olive Crest, a non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of abused or neglected children.
