The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and fund a wellness program incorporating yoga for at-risk youth in Los Angeles County, California. Operation Jump Start and United Dream factory were the agencies selected as the potential hosts of this project.
A thorough review of the literature indicated that youth are particularly vulnerable to issues that may negatively affect their healthy development and well-being (physical, psychological, social and environmental). Previous research also indicated that the best way to address the issues of adolescent health include collaborative approaches that address a variety of factors. Therefore, the grant writer designed a comprehensive wellness program that incorporates yoga, physical activity, mindfulness training and nutrition education; Mindful Active Teens Stretching, Practicing Awareness and Cultivating Ease or MAT SPACE. Private and public potential funding sources were researched and The Give Back Yoga Foundation was identified, as their goals are similar to the goals of MAT SPACE.
Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
