Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a program, locate potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a youth offender reentry program for males between the ages of 14-18 years reintegrating in to the community of South Los Angeles upon release from a Los Angeles County Juvenile Hall Facility. This program will be co-located in Children's Bureau a non-profit agency in South Los Angeles, California. The proposed program will provide reentry services to youth offenders to increase the chances of youth making a successful transition to the community, decrease youth criminal behavior and the likelihood of future criminal involvement, and promote positive youth development. The California Wellness Foundation (Cal Wellness) was identified as the potential funding source for the proposed program. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement of this project.
