The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop and fund a College Preparedness Program to educate students in South Los Angeles about college requirements, process and resources. An extensive literature review was conducted in order to examine the risk factors implementing college attendance for students in South Los Angeles and strategies utilized in the past to increase college enrollment. The Annenberg Foundation was selected as the funder for this program.
The proposed program would be offered to high school students enrolled at Youth Opportunities High School, located in the community of Watts in south Los Angeles. If funded, the program will aid students with college planning, preparedness and workshops. The overall goal of this program will be to increase high school students' knowledge about college, provide guidance and support to increase college enrollment. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
