Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop a program that provides leadership and educational opportunities for girls ages 13-17, who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation. The goal is to empower these young women to become leaders of their own lives, as well as mentor future survivors. The host agency is David and Margaret Youth and Family Services located in La Verne, California (Los Angeles County). The proposed program, Thrive Leadership, aims to bridge an essential gap in services for this population, through its special program to serve young women who have been trafficked. The Stuart Foundation was selected as a potential funding source because of its shared commitment to improving the well-being of children and youth in out of home care. Actual submission and/or funding was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
