The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source, complete a grant application for Orange Health Care Agency, and develop a preventative program for teen dating violence (TDV). A literature review was performed to explore the risk factors that may contribute to adolescent abusive relationships. They included; childhood maltreatment, high-risk behaviors, and cultural attitudes. With the information obtained through the literature review, a program was designed to increase awareness and education ofTDV. The main goals of the program are to reduce the rate ofTDV by assisting adolescents in understanding the dynamics of abusive relationships, and educate them on healthy dating practices. The California Wellness Foundation was identified as an appropriate funder, as its mission matched this project's goals. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
