The purpose of this project was to design a mentorship program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a mentorship program. This mentorship program targets Latino foster youth residing in or near the city of Paramount, California. An extensive literature review increased awareness of the biological, psychological, and social needs of foster youth and of specific issues impacting the Latino community. Best practices among mentorship programs are also outlined and used to guide the planning of the proposed mentorship program. Next, a search for potential funding sources was conducted through the use of the Internet and grant databases. The Helen Brach Foundation was selected as the best funding source for this project. A grant proposal was then written to support a culturally sensitive mentorship program targeting Latino foster youth.
