by Satourian, Seema, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 52; 1517784
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a grant proposal to launch a teen pregnancy prevention campaign in Pasadena, CA. The first step will be to create a documentary of Latina teens and their parents to emphasize the importance, of close parent-teen relationships and open communication about sex. The documentary will be used to facilitate discussion with various parent and teen groups in the community. Finally, a coalition will be developed to unify community organizations and members in order to maximize efforts towards prevention of teen pregnancy. An extensive literature review was conducted to learn of' risk and protective factors that affect teen pregnancy, the role of parent-teen relationships, and existing parent-teen programs. Day One was identified as the hosting agency and California Community Foundation was selected as the funding source. The submission of this proposal was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
