The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund Youth for One World, a program designed to help Arab American youth predominately residing in Los Angeles and Orange counties develop leadership skills and participate in mainstream American society. The literature review described the shortages and benefits of Arab American youth involvement in leadership opportunities within mainstream America, the importance of empowering Arab American youth, and theoretical frameworks of increasing their leadership skills.
The Weingart Foundation was selected as the potential funder. The goal of Youth for One World program is to enhance leadership capabilities and promote Arab American youth by providing opportunities to build skills and proficiencies through engagement in activities that encourage and promote competence and support the involvement of Arab American youth in mainstream America activities and prospects. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
