The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source for a grant to create a facilitator position for a life skills and career education program for at-risk youth who are enrolled in an alternative education high school program.
Good decision-making and employable skills are critical for successful and sustainable independent living. Having goals and a sense of future direction should be a primary focus for alternative education instructors and child welfare professionals who work with at-risk youth transitioning toward independent living. Many are not ready for self-sufficiency without better preparation for higher education, trade school, career training, or a caring adult. Guidance in the areas of educational or vocational training, career readiness, and functional living skills are instrumental for an at-risk youth’s success in reaching goals, fulfilling dreams, and becoming contributing members of society.
This project includes a potential funding source, budget, time line, and a recommendation for advocacy. Submission for funding was not a requirement for this project.
