Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to design a program, identify potential funding sources and write a grant to fund a mentoring-dropout prevention program. The mentoring-dropout prevention program targets Cambodian youth residing in the city of Long Beach, California. An extensive literature review increased awareness of the acculturative and psychosocial challenges that affect Cambodian youth and specific issues impacting the Cambodian community. Relevant theories and best practices among mentoring programs are also used to guide the planning of the proposed mentoring program. Next, a search for potential funding sources was conducted using various methods including Internet searches, grant databases and consultations with professional grant writers. The Ford Foundation was selected as the best funding source for this project. A grant proposal was then written to support the need for a culturally sensitive mentoring-dropout prevention program targeting Cambodian youth.
