Executive Summary

Bethany Christian Services proposes the "AmeriCorps Asset Program" to serve older foster care youth and resettled refugees/immigrants who reside in Grand Rapids and 4 adjoining counties in West Michigan. 17 AmeriCorps members will recruit/train 290 volunteers as mentors and equip the target population with increased developmental assets, community connectedness, self-sufficiency, and job readiness to end the inter-generational cycles of poverty common to these vulnerable populations.
