by Miller, Angela, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 55; 10262534
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to develop and fund a group mentoring program for transitional-aged youth (TAY) ages 16 to 18. The proposed program will be located in Los Angeles, California. The Watts Labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC) was selected as the host agency for this project. A literature review was conducted to examine topics related to TAY including their challenges and outcomes. The ultimate goal of this proposed project is to increase the independent living skills in the areas of education, employment, and finances for the TAY population. This grant was written for the Ralph M. Parsons Foundations (RMPF). The actual submission or funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
