The purpose of this project was to write a grant to develop a mentoring program for foster youth. The program will be designed for minority male youth, ages 12 to 18, and will espouse the Recovery Model. This model seeks to promote client empowerment by allowing the minority males to have a say in the selection of mentors. The client will have a large state in their treatment plan and other goals concerning permanency following departure from the out of home foster care environment.
A literature review was conducted in order to provide empirical evidence in support of a mentoring program. The mentoring program will be located in Ettie Lee Youth & Family Services, located in Los Angeles County. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
