by Alvarez, Enelida, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 60; 1486396
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to design a program, identifying potential funding sources, and write a grant proposal to seek funding for a mentoring-dropout prevention program that serves to prevent high school students from dropping out. The proposed dropout prevention program uses an individual, school, and community based approach. The programs mission is to work with Compton High School students in an attempt to decrease the dropout rate among those who are identified as "at risk." Through individualized tutoring and mental health services, self-actualization and parental involvement, students will be encouraged to believe in education.
