Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, locate a potential funding source, and write a grant to obtain funding for a preventative program for at-risk youth. A literature review was conducted in order to analyze the background and prevalence of juvenile delinquency, and past and current prevention and intervention efforts to address it. The preventative program will be located at Boys Republic's Monrovia Day program, located in Monrovia, California. The program will provide at-risk (male and female) high school aged (13-18) youth with education, independent living skills, and recreational activities to develop or improve social skills, emotional growth, and self-sufficiency. The program will also assist youth with developing meaningful relationships with nonfamily adults through the use of mentorship. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion ofthe project.
