Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify funding sources and write a grant to fund a teen dating violence prevention program at a middle school in Southern California. An extensive review of literature provided an overview of definition, prevalence, risk factors, effect of victimization, cultural aspects, and effective prevention programs of teen dating violence. The literature review increased knowledge regarding teen dating violence and provided evidence based practice prevention programs which was considered in the development of the program. A search for potential funding sources from various internet grant databases was used and The California Wellness Foundation was selected as the best funding source for this project. After the selection of a funding source, a grant was written to provide an educational program to prevent teen dating violence at Ball Junior High in Anaheim, California.
