Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to design a program, identify potential funding source, and complete a grant to fund a bullying intervention program for foster children attending middle school. The services would be offered at SHIELDS a non-profit agency serving the Compton and Watts communities of South Los Angeles. The bullying intervention program will be design to provide educational workshops for caregivers and educational/support groups for foster children with an open Department of Children and Family Services case. The Weingart Foundation was chosen as the best applicant for submitting this grant proposal based on the population they serve and their interests to provide services to disadvantage communities. Research supports the high need for bullying support services for foster children due to their propensity of being a vulnerable population and facing many adversities. The submission of a tangible grant application was not required for the completion of this project.
