Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant proposal to fund a summer camp and mentorship program for lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ} foster youth. A review of literature provided knowledge regarding what services would provide support for the LGBTQ foster youth population. The objectives of the program was to create an opportunity for participating youth to build a long-lasting relationship with an adult mentor, to network and form encouraging relationships with other LGBTQ foster youth, to build upon their ability to cope with issues facing LGBTQ foster youth and to improve attitudes about their future. A grant was written to financially support a summer camp and mentorship program for LGBTQ foster youth. Actual submission of this grant was not required for successful completion of this thesis.
