Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Service learning for at-risk youth: A grant proposal
by Gamino-Buzo, Luis F., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 63; 1523248
Abstract (Summary)

At-risk youth tend to be children and adolescents who are more likely to discontinue their educational career and fall prey to illiteracy, drugs, crimes, and jails. Casa Pacifica Non-Public School provides direct services to at-risk youth mainly on a therapeutic level. More specifically, Casa Pacifica Non-Public School aims to help students achieve the goals of their Individualized Education Plan, meet academic standards, and exhibit acceptable behaviors. Service learning literature offers evidence that students who participate in such programs have the potential to improve academic achievement and reduce negative behaviors. The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain funding to create service learning opportunities for the students of Casa Pacifica Non-Public School. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
