The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a simulation training for transitional age youth living in a residential facility. Since transitional age youth face many challenges once they emancipate out of the foster care system, the goal of the project was to provide these youth with independent living skills in an effort to assist their transition into adulthood successfully. Some of the issues encountered by the youth are problems with housing, education, employment, mental health, substance abuse, and criminal involvement. Services for this project would be offered at Maryvale, a residential facility located in Rosemead, California. The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation was selected due to its funding category for youth. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required per the completion of this project.
