by Quintero, Nayeli, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 72; 1523288
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop and fund a Life Skills Program to educate Latino students regarding the college application process and professional careers to pursue a higher education. An extensive literature review was conducted to understand the needs of Latino students and interventions that can effectively assist them to improve their higher education enrollment. The S. Mark Taper Foundation was selected as the funder for this program.

The proposed program would be offered through Santa Fe High School, located in the city of Santa Fe Springs, California. If funded, the program will provide Latino students with the skills and information necessary to pursue a higher education, to be competitive in the workforce and have a prosperous life. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
