The purpose of this project was to design a gang and violence prevention program, identify potential finding sources, and write a grant to reduce gang participation and violence in Long Beach, California for the Boys and Girls Club of America. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the problem of gangs and provided information about evidence-based gang prevention and intervention programs that the grant writer then used to design a evidence based and comprehensive program. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and a grant database resulted in the selection of The California Wellness Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A grant was written for submission to The California Wellness Foundation.
