The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to fund an after-school program for adolescents in foster care to be implemented by the Tijaj Renee Crisis Intervention Center in Los Angeles, California. A search for a potential funding source resulted in selection of the California Community Foundation.
The literature confirms that after-school programs can play key roles in engaging adolescents in the learning process by providing opportunities to explore interests, gain competency in real world skills, solve problems, assume leadership roles, develop a group identity with similarly engaged peers, connect to adult role models and mentors, and become involved in improving their communities. The objectives of this program are to: (1) improve participant's academic performance, (2) improve school behavior, and (3) improve social competence of participant through cultural and recreational activities. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant are not requirements for the successful completion of the project.
