The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund a mentoring program for youth between the ages of 16 and 20 who are transitioning from foster care. The program is designed to improve the chances of transitioning foster youth for successful emancipation outcomes. It is expected that guidance and emotional support by adult mentors, will increase the youth's self-confidence, sense of self-esteem and educational opportunities and decrease unemployment, homelessness, teen pregnancy, substance-use and delinquency. The host agency is Families Uniting Families, a Foster Family Agency located in Long Beach, CA, and the identified funding source for this program is the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
