The purpose of this project was to design a mentoring program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a culturally sensitive mentoring program. This mentoring program targets Latino youth receiving child welfare services from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. This mentoring program aims at assisting foster youth avoid potential maladaptive outcomes by increasing their self-esteem, academic achievement and life skills. An extensive literature review increased awareness about the benefits of a mentoring program for at-risk youth. The Stuart Foundation was selected as the best funding sources to support this project. A grant proposal was then written to support a culturally sensitive mentoring program targeting Latino foster youth.
