The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source and write a complete grant in order to implement a mentoring program for juvenile gang members and at-risk youth in San Luis Obispo County, California. The objective of the program was to identify, screen, and train adults volunteering to mentor at-risk youth and juvenile gang members identified by the San Luis Obispo County Independent Living Program. The adult mentors were expected to develop a positive and supportive relationship with the youth. An extensive literature review was completed to develop understanding about the factors contributing to gang involvement, as well as the benefits to youth working with adult mentors. An investigation of potential funding sources resulted in identifying The California Endowment Innovative Ideas Challenge as the funding source for this project. Actual submission and funding of this grant were not required for successful completion of this project.
