Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a school-based mentoring program for Hispanic immigrant middle school students ages 11-14, to identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant application for the program. Berendo Middle School, part of the Los Angeles Unified School District, is the intended location for the program.

After a review of the funding available, the Weingart Foundation has been selected as the best source for a grant submission. The proposed program consists of: mentor training curriculum, orientation, an eligibility screening for all volunteers; an after-school component that promotes academics, social competence and community citizenship. The program includes pre and post evaluations.

The effects of immigration on academic and social performance, risks of school dropout and trends for mentor programs are discussed.
