by Pursell, Kim, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 66; 1493173
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to develop and fund an evidence-based teen-dating violence prevention program in 2 urban high schools in Los Angeles County, California. After conducting a thorough review of the literature examining risk factors and the most effective interventions for adolescents who have experienced dating violence, the grant writer proposed implementing an evidenced-based teen-dating violence prevention program, Safe Dates. A host agency was selected to provide the training.

After searching public and private potential funding sources, the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women was found to have an applicable Request For Application for funding available, identified as closely aligned with the primary goals congruent with the mission of the host agency.

Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
