The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop an educational mentorship program that would provide an ongoing support system for youth who are currently in the Orange County foster care system. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the needs of children in and out of foster care and as well as learn about what has been to address those needs. Information gathered for the literature review shaped how the proposed program will help address some ofthe adversities foster youth face in and out of foster care. In order to launch the proposed program, a search was conducted to locate a potential funder. The U.S. Department of Justice was chosen as the most suitable grant for the proposed educational mentorship program.
The proposed program, Aim for Success, will provide mentorship, tutoring and other supportive services that will empower foster youth participants between the ages of 12-21. The primary goal of the program is to teach foster youth participants necessary life skills and provide them with a supportive atmosphere to achieve their full potential that will lead them on successful road post emancipation from the foster care system.
