Transitioning youth in the foster care system to successful young adult living is essential. They must be able to achieve a high school diploma, which is challenging for many. Too often, foster youth and those in kinship care are at higher risk of homelessness, unemployment and incarceration. The purpose of this Commitment Initiative was to create a grant proposal to enhance the Empowering Children to Achieve Academic Success: A Curriculum for Kinship Caregivers and Foster Parents, by adding additional materials and making this updated resource available for use nationwide. This Commitment Initiative aims to provide foster parents, kinship caregivers, and child welfare workers who have 11th and 12th grade students in their care with resources to achieve postsecondary education, financial aid and employment. Included in the grant proposal is a budget, timeline, and staffing. Submission of this grant proposal was not required for the successful completion of this project.
