The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a comprehensive bullying prevention and intervention program at Southeast Middle School (SEMS) in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the prevalence, long-term effects, theoretical frameworks and programs developed to address bullying and cyberbullying victimization. The literature reviewed revealed that a school-based bullying prevention program is highly needed due to approximately 30% of United States students in grades 6–10 having reported involvement in moderate or frequent bullying. The proposed program will take a whole-school approach to reduce bullying, by implementing both prevention and intervention components of Second Step for students, teachers, staff, and parents at SEMS. The overall goal of Second Step program is to build a connected school culture, peer relationships, and reduce bullying and violence on campus. Students will participate in classroom activities to build empathy, impulse control, and anger management skills. Teachers will be trained on how to implement Second Step; the program will be implemented at all grade levels (once a week for 50 minutes) and reduce peer conflict by 50%. The Joseph Drown Foundation was the closest fit that could provide funding for the proposed program, considering the types of populations of interest, the foundation's mission, and funding priorities. If funded, this program would enhance students coping capacities at SEMS to prevent bullying victimization. Actual submission of and/or funding of this grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
