Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for an after school mentoring program at Julian Nava Learning Academy located in South Los Angeles, California. This after school mentoring program has an emphasis in performing arts. Through a creative nontraditional strength based approach, this program seeks to increase protective factors for the youth by providing them with education, support and guidance. Students in this program will be exposed to multicultural connections through the disciplines offine arts such as theater, music and dance. Youth in this program will be benefited as they will have a safe place where they will be able to have healthy social interactions during the after school hours. Although, writing a grant for an after school mentoring program with an emphasis in performing arts is innovating, the submission of the grant for funding is not an actual requirement for the successful completion of the project.
