Abstract (Summary)

Teenage foster youth are at risk of having problems with early pregnancy because they are exposed to child abuse at home and in foster care. Teenagers need mentors to provide them with sex education on safe sex and skill building. This grant project seeks funding for a teen mentoring program called Project Teenage Mentoring through the State Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), Family and Youth Service Bureau (FYSB) that awards grants to agencies to help teach young people about abstinence and contraception. The agency where the mentoring program will take place will be the Assistance League of Los Angeles in Hollywood, California. Project Teenage Mentoring's goal is to prevent foster youth from becoming pregnant by working in collaboration with the Department of Children and Family Services and providing mentoring services to foster youth to prevent teenage pregnancy.
