by Nanthavongdouangsy, Filipina, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 59; 10251944
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to fund the peer mentoring component for the College Success Program at Operation Jump Start (OJS) in Long Beach, California. The program will provide emotional and academic support to first-generation, low-income, college students, who would not necessarily know how to access or sustain this kind of relationship during their first year in college. The literature will discuss barriers that would otherwise increase retention and focus on the positive aspects of college mentoring that could improve retention rates for this population. Submission and/or funding of this project was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
