The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to implement a life skills education program for academically at-risk youth enrolled in Soledad Enrichment Action (SEA) Charter High School in Los Angeles, California. The life skills program was designed to help those students achieve the skills they need to transition into adulthood. Twenty students will participate in each 3-month cycle for 1 calendar year for 60 students. The program aims to achieve its goals by providing psych educational classes based on empirically supported research with an emphasis on increasing attendance through incentives, teaching job readiness skills, and increasing the students' knowledge about developing healthy relationships. Enrolling students referred by the school's case managers will ensure the program is serving the students who are the most in need. Actual submission of this grant for funding was not a requirement of this project.
