The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to secure funding for a recreational and vocational program for female foster youth who reside in group homes run by Rosemary Children's Services in Pasadena, California. A literature review was conducted to examine topics related to foster youth living in group homes, including the challenges and outcomes of foster youth, protective factors, and the barriers to and benefits of recreational activities and vocational training. The goals of the proposed recreational and vocational program were to enhance educational attainment and to provide better job opportunities for this population. The Weingart Foundation was identified as a potential funder for the proposed program. The actual submission or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
