Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to raise awareness for one of the most lucrative and fastest growing social problems in the United States, Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST). The goal of this grant proposal is to promote awareness of DMST through a school-based prevention program where junior and high school students can be informed about the signs and risks of trafficking and ways in which help can be provided. The host organization is Western Youth Services (WYS) in Orange County, CA which is committed to advancing awareness, cultivating success and strengthening communities through integrated mental health services for children, youth and families. A potential funding source is provided along with staffing, implementation guidelines, and a budget. Implications for policy, practice, and advocacy are offered. Actual submission and/or funding was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
