The purpose of this project was to create a grant proposal to fund the development of resource materials that could be used by foster parents, kinship caregivers, and child welfare workers to help the youth in their care graduate from high school and increase opportunities for higher education or vocational training. The emotional, social, and cognitive stages of adolescent development are complicated by the circumstances that caused separation from their parents and then additional challenges that arise from going to live with relatives or joining foster families. Resource materials are needed so that foster parents, kinship caregivers, and child welfare workers can help young people overcome the obstacles and be advocates for them to complete high school. This project describes a potential host organization, staffing, implementation steps, budget, and a potential funder. Actual funding and submission of this grant proposal were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
