The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a potential funding source, and complete a grant application to fund it. The proposed program will be a support program for at-risk Latino youth and youth in foster care to help them better adjust to middle school. The program will include support groups, one-on-one counseling, and referrals for tutoring. The location of the program will be a middle school in Los Angeles that predominantly consists of low-income Latino students. A thorough literature review was conducted to determine if there was a need to assist preadolescents transitioning to middle school. After searching for potential funding sources, the Joseph Drown Foundation was selected as the best funding source for this project. A grant was written to fund and support the support program. The actual submission of the grant was not required for the completion of this project.
