Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop an academic recource center for youth in foster care to promote educational success. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the needs and barriers of youth in foster care as they relate to education and how to best address them. Shaped through the literature review, a program was designed in which goals and objectives were set that would help youth in foster care increase their chances of reaching academic success. The goals included to increase high school graduation rates, to promote and facilitate post-secondary education access, and to provide educational advocacy on behalf of the youth in foster care through an Educational Liaison. The Ralph M. Parson's foundation was chosen as a funder because the foundation's mission and goals closely matched those of the project. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for successful completion of this academic project.
