Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A mentoring program for adolescents in a placement facility: A grant proposal project
by Bunkley, Ronnie L., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 85; 1486401
Abstract (Summary)

Foster youth are the highest categorized population of becoming physically, mentally, and educationally, at risk of distress following adolescence. The purpose of this project is to research potential foster youth needs, design a mentoring grant, and locate a foundation that would assist in establishing a grant-funded at-risk youth mentoring component designed within an independent living program at a residential placement facility. The research findings provided study facts that increased the knowledge about what mentoring programs offer, statistics on foster youth, and positive factors associated with beginning a mentoring program.

Searching for a grant foundation produced several grant opportunities that were potentially associated with funding an effective mentoring component within an independent living program. The California Community Foundation was selected as the best source for funding for this grant. A grant was then written to support a mentoring component within the independent living program at the LeRoy Haynes Center.
