Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to secure funding for a program that promotes the well-being of Black student athletes. This project will be the first of its kind located in a high school. The hosting agency of this project is Long Beach Polytechnic High School.

Sports continue to play a large role in the life of Black high school students. With all of the pressures that these athletes face, more programs are needed to support the well-being of Black youth. After researching and reviewing of the literature, the grant writer developed a program to enhance the well-being of Black student athletes, titled the Art of Wellness. After reviewing the grant options, the Weingart Foundation was selected as the potential best fit for the goals and objects of the proposed project.

Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
