Project #57455 - Grant Proposal

 

As discussed in this unit, a problem/needs statement is often a required part of a grant proposal. A human service organization needs to demonstrate that it is serving an important, documented need in the community.

 

This week, you will develop a needs/problem statement for your own organization (or the “model” one you used for the Assignment in Unit 3).

 

You may use the template below to organize your work. Please be sure to write in complete sentences and to utilize the strategies for effective grant writing covered in this unit as well as Unit 5.

    (This is my unit 3 assignment)

    The mission of the Youth Empowerment Project is: “By providing intensive case management, mentoring and educational services to at-risk New Orleans youth, we will strengthen each young person’s capacity to successfully connect with his or her family and community and lay the foundation for a healthy transition to adulthood .”

     

    The name of the not-for-profit organization is Youth Empowerment Project.

     

    Melissa Sawyer and two of her colleagues founded the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) in 2004 in order to provide help to the youth who had been away in juvenile detention centers to positively rejoin their families, friends, and society. The youth are also supported to learn new ways to live healthier, safe lifestyles in order to avoid the possibilities of revisiting the juvenile detention centers. Since 2004, YEP has expanded their programming and have included services to the youth who have not been in detention centers but were in danger of going because of the way they lived their lives. Because of this, YEP has been recognized locally and nationally for the progress they have made with the youth through their programs.

     

    YEP has constantly grown since they have started in 2004. In the beginning, they only had one program and only served twenty five youth with an annual budget of $235,000. Currently, YEP has eight programs and serves over one thousand youth with a budget of over three million dollars. It is the largest youth program with the highest success rate within their seven locations in the New Orleans, Louisiana region.

     

    There are eight programs provided to the youth between the ages of seven and twenty four by YEP as long as they live in the New Orleans area. They include Community Reintegration, the first program within the YEP’s organization is designed to individualize case management and support in order to reverse the difficult transition into a positive and smooth one ; Community Based Mentoring Program, a program that started in 2008 to youth between ages eight and eighteen who have not been to a detention center, but are at risk of going because of their negative behavior  ; New Orleans Providing Literacy to All Youth, a program that started in 2006 and provides adult education classes to allow youth between the ages of sixteen and twenty four to earn their GED; The Village, a program that started in 2009 and provides to out-of-school youth ages 16-21 with GED/HiSET preparation* and wrap-around case management services, which also includes job preparation and life skills  ; Afterschool Enrichment Program is a program that provides services to youth who are between first grade and twelfth grade to help with tutoring and other support services, such as, anger management, mental health, and counseling; Summer Camp is offered to about one hundred youth between the ages of seven and thirteen to allow them an opportunity to engage in summer activities; Trafigura  Work and Learn Center is a youth employment program that is guided and directed by the staff of YEP. They learn on the job skills and get paid while they are learning; and Youth Futures Initiative, which is the newest program to YEP. It involves a more intense case management service, which provides an advocate to each individual youth to help with transitioning from youth to adulthood.

     

    The youth advocate is the voice for the youth. They plan activities according to the youth need. They also provide guidance and positive behavior support.

    The literacy instructor teaches the youth how to read and write. This is essential to being successful in life as it will enable one to apply for jobs. The program coordinator is responsible for all activities and decisions of the organization. They work to make sure the organization is being run properly.
