by McDuffie, Colleen A., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 57; 10263217
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop and secure funding for a music therapy program for transitional-aged youth (TAY), aged 15 to 18, who are struggling with mental health problems. The Boys & Girls Club of Long Beach (BGCLB) in California was selected as the host agency for this program. After reviewing the literature on music therapy and its positive benefits for youth with mental health issues, the grant writer designed a music therapy program, Melodies of Intervention. The purpose of the proposed program was to help these TAY improve their well-being and chances of success in life by improving their self-esteem, reducing their anxiety, and improving their attitudes toward and relationships with peers. This grant was written to the California Community Foundation (CCF). The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
