The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, locate a potential funding source, and write a grant proposal to gain funding for an advocacy program to address the needs of at risk adolescent females in the child welfare system. A literature review was conducted in order to examine the risk factors impacting adolescents, system barriers within an adolescent's system of care, protective factors fostering positive outcomes, as well as policies addressing the needs for selected population. The advocacy program will be held at Girls & Gangs agency in Los Angeles, California and will be potentially funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The program consists of case management, education, mentoring and advocacy. The advocacy program will help encourage systems collaboration to increase continuity of services, as well as increase protective factors leading to positive outcomes for adolescent females. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
