by McMullen, Rebecca L., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 46; 1585520
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal is to seek the funding needed to support the personnel necessary to provide a quality after-school care, musical theatre, enrichment program for 2 low performing elementary schools in the Long Beach Unified School District. The Children's Theatre of Long Beach's overall goal is to promote the wellness of the whole child. Based in the theoretical framework of positive youth development, the program has three aims 1) to increase student self-esteem, 2) to increase student engagement in school, and 3) to increase parental involvement. A review of relevant research suggested that achieving these goals may also improve academic performance. Actual submission and funding is not a requirement for this project.
