Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop and secure funding for a mentoring program for African American youth between the ages of 13 to 18. The host agency is the Dangerfield Institute of Urban Problems Group Home located in Los Angeles, California.

The goal of the project is to implement a program that introduces African American youth to positive adult role models with the intent to secure a lasting relationship as the youth transition into adulthood. Another goal of the program is to provide the youth with the tools to explore self-development. After reviewing the funding options, the Weingart Foundation was selected as the best fit for the goals and objectives of the proposed project.

The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
