Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Promoting cultural understanding among ethnically diverse foster youth and their peers within the school environment
by Burgos, Evelyn, M.S.Q.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 65; 1499234
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and fund a project to promote cultural understanding and ethnic identity among foster youth, and their peers. The target age groups are youth in the 7th and 8th grade. The location of the proposed program is at Horace Ensign Middle School in Newport Beach, California.

A detailed review of the literature was conducted by examining ethnic identity and most effective interventions to promote cultural understanding among adolescents. The literature available on model programs for youth in foster care was also reviewed. Both public and private potential funding sources were searched. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was identified to be the most suitable for this grant proposal project.

Actual submission for funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
