The purpose of this project was to write a grant and locate a funder to provide a commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) prevention course for female youth in the child welfare and/or juvenile justice system. Caregivers and social service professionals will also be included. There is great demand for the proposed program as an increasing number of youth, specifically those involved in the child welfare system and/or juvenile justice system, are at risk for CSEC.
The proposed program will provide education of risk factors that can lead to CSEC as well as how to identify potential victims. The identified youth, caregivers, and social service professionals will attend their respective courses. The youth’s course will be held at Olive Crest in the City of Bellflower, located in Service Planning Area (SPA) 7 of Los Angeles County. The caregivers’ and social service professionals’ courses will be held in probation and Department of Children and Family Services offices within the same area. The Hearst Foundation was chosen as the potential funder.
The actual submission of the grant application was not a requirement of the thesis project.
