This grant proposal examines the risk factors of Transitional Age Youth (TAY) and outcomes that influence a successful transition to adulthood among dependent and non-dependent TAY. Additionally, the grant examines the negative outcomes this population is at risk for, such as higher rates of substance abuse, pregnancy, mental health issues, and lower rates of employment and education. Based upon research and the effectiveness of particular programs such as Independent Living Programs, Mentoring Programs, and Transitional Housing Placements that help decrease the negative outcomes.
Overall this grant proposes the need for further transitional services for the nondependent TAY through an employment position titled as the Transitional Services Case Manager (TSCM) employed by the nonprofit Agency of True to Life Connections (TLC) Child and Family Services located in Sebastopol, California. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
