The purpose of the project was to fund a radio station run by foster youth in Los Angeles County. This program will collaborate with other programs at Vista Del Mar and local service providers to support individuals with their needs. Vista Del Mar, the hosting agency of this project, is located in Los Angeles County, California.
After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed a Creative Youth Development program providing creative media outlet of radio programming, engineering and broadcasting as a vocational and therapeutic environment to teach current foster youth fundamental independent-living skills and provide mental health services, which will allow these youths to be successful as they transition into adulthood. After researching funding sources, the W. M. Keck Foundation was determined to be the most applicable match.
Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
