The purpose of this project was to develop and write a grant that addresses ethnic identity building and bicultural socialization skills for Southeast Asian American youth in Long Beach, California. The literature reveals that this population has higher delinquency rates, more families living in poverty, and low academic achievement. The Identity Building program's goal is to address the unique experiences of Southeast Asian Americans by building a support network and improving the well-being of these youth through activities focused on increasing academic success, ethnic identity knowledge, bicultural socialization skills, and self-esteem. The youth will also participate in community activities to strengthen their problem solving skills regarding racism, discrimination, and stereotyping. The identified funding source for the proposed program is the Crail-Johnson Foundation. If funded, this program would afford Southeast Asian American youth the support they need to succeed in school and life.
