The purpose of this project was to enhance and support a female youth mentoring program for at-risk youth being served by the Child Welfare system. The HerShe Group Foundation is a program, which serves Service Planning Area 6 (SPA 6) of Los Angeles County and implements strategies and interventions to help empower and enhance young adolescent females who are in the foster care system. The purpose is to identify potential funding sources, to complete a grant application to support and expand services to more female foster youth between 13 through 21 years of age. The grant would be used to supplement core-operating expenses and build on the program's capacity to meet the needs of more female youth. The program will provide opportunities to build mentoring relationships between youth and a caring and positive adult figure to strengthen and enhance positive relationship. The program will also strengthen youth outcomes as they transition into adulthood by focusing on higher educational attainment, building meaningful adult-relationships, and expose the youth to life experiences, which will foster life lessons while building leadership skills. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
