The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant to fund an educational program to prevent child abuse among Latino children who attend a charter school located in an economically disadvantaged area of Los Angeles. The host agency was the Global Education Academy, which is a charter school in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The grant writer developed the project after an extensive review of the literature. The project seeks to educate parents by providing them with skills and knowledge needed to aid in the prevention of child abuse. The W.M. Keck Foundation was chosen as the potential funding source for this program, which has a history of supporting similar programs in the greater Los Angeles area.
Actual submission of the grant was not a requirement for successful completion of the thesis project.
