by Myers, Kellisa Christine, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 69; 1590137
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain funding for a teen dating violence prevention program. Teen dating violence continues to be a major concern in the United States, with many serious mental health and public health consequences. The proposed program, entitled The Healthy Relationships Safe Communities Project, would include a prevention program for students, and collaborative trainings for teachers and parents. The goals are for students, parents, and teachers to increase awareness, knowledge, and skills related to preventing teen dating violence victimization and perpetration. The program would be hosted at Pioneer High School, in the Whittier Union High School District, a public high school district in Whittier, California. Funding options were explored and Joseph Drown Foundation was identified as the best potential funder for this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
