Grants for Programs Fighting Teen Dating Abuse

From The Foundation Center...

Deadline: November 15, 2009

Do Something Offers Grants to Support Youth-Led Projects Addressing Teen Dating Abuse

Do Something and Liz Claiborne, Inc. seek to support young people across the United States who are taking a stand against teen dating abuse.

Do Something will award ten grants of $250 each to help run projects started by young people that are fighting teen dating abuse. Programs may include activities such as holding an abuse awareness week at school, setting up a peer-counseling program, or posting fliers to alert people about dating abuse hotlines. Special consideration will be given to projects that include an event on It's Time to Talk Day (December 3, 2009), or culminate in some way on that day.

The applicant must be 25 or under and must be a U.S. or Canadian citizen.

Visit the Do Something Web site for complete program guidelines.
