The purpose of this project was to identify a funder and write a grant to create an online high school program for migrant farmworker youth. The literature review revealed that migrant farmworker students face many barriers to academic achievement. Social workers are needed to provide additional educational support services.
The goal of the program is to provide accessible educational resources, including a specialized curriculum, computers, and internet services, to help migrant farmworker youth attain their age-appropriate grade level and eventually graduate from high school. Psychological support and case management will also be provided.
The John Jordan Foundation was selected as a potential funding source due to their focus on improving educational opportunities for vulnerable populations and their interest in the Sonoma County area. Graton Day Labor Center was selected as the host agency.
If funded, this program will aid in removing educational barriers for migrant farmworker youth. The actual submission of this grant application was not a requirement of the thesis project.
