Foster youth who are transitioning into adulthood face many barriers and are at risk of poor psychosocial outcomes as they become adults. Often, they do not complete high school, have few positive social supports, and lack important life skills to be successful independent adults. The purpose of this project was to develop a two-year mentoring program for foster youth who will be transitioning soon into adulthood (age 16-18), identify a potential funding source, and complete a grant application to fund this mentoring program for the nonprofit agency, Ascending Lights, in Los Angeles, California. The grant writer selected the California Community Foundation as the potential funding source for this proposed program. The program is designed to provide academic and emotional support, as well as important life skills and mentorship guidance to help these foster youth successfully transition into adulthood. The actual submission or funding of the grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
