Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop a peer mentorship program, titled Inspired to Become Resilient, for foster youth aged 16 to 18, who are transitioning out of the foster care system or have already done so. The host agency for this program is Project Renew, located in Costa Mesa, California. A literature review was conducted to examine topics related to foster youth including their challenges and outcomes. The purpose of the proposed program was to teach and promote independent living skills, according to the individual needs and goals of the participants, provide social and emotional support, and provide links to resources and services. After searching for funding sources, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation was selected as a potential grant funder. The actual submission or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful competition of the project.
