Transitional Age Youth and Mentorship: A Grant Proposal
by Tillett, Phylicia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 65; 13859111
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project is to fund a mentorship program for emancipating youth in foster care. This program will be offered to foster youth ages 16-20 who are currently in the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) foster care system. The hosting agency of this project is the Social and Emotional Wellness Initiative (SEWI) which provides support to at-risk youth, including foster youth. After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed a program providing mentorship to emancipating foster youth. After researching funding sources, the Stuart Foundation was determined to the most applicable match for funding of the project based on their extensive history of funding programs for foster youth. Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
