Abstract (Summary)

Educational achievement and obtainment of living wage employment are essential in the effort to help young adults overcome poverty. Yet, many young impoverished adults are likely to experience a lack of role models who provide guidance in these specific areas of personal development. The purpose of this project was to supplement the workforce training and support services that are offered to young adults, ages 18 to 28, through Taller San Jose with an evidenced-based pilot mentoring program. Taller San Jose helps young, impoverished adults move towards economic self-sufficiency. The goal of this project was to fund the Office Careers Academy Pilot Mentoring Program (OCAPMP) that was proposed by this grant writer. Submission and funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for this thesis project.
