The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to implement a school-based, multi-tier, universal adolescent dating abuse (ADA) prevention program. Considering the prevalence of ADA among youth in the United States, its increased incidence as youth become older, and the serious consequences linked to the problem, a school-based, universal ADA prevention program implemented prior to or at the time when youth begin dating may be the most strategic plan to combat ADA. For this reason, the program will be hosted by Hartman Middle School in Redondo Beach, California.
The goals of the program are to increase protective factors that help decrease the incidence of ADA, including decreasing student acceptance of ADA and gender norms; increasing student self-efficacy; increasing student sense of school attachment; and increasing parental, teacher, and community involvement with students. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was chosen as the funding source for the grant proposal project as the agency believes in empowering children, families, and communities to improve their quality of life through the application of knowledge and resources. The actual submission and funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
