Adolescents experience violence from a wide range of perpetrators that may include family members and dating partners. Adolescent victims experience fear and shame, and social norms that may discourage them from seeking help. If funded, Community Support Services (CSS) will maintain and enhance provision of teen dating violence prevention information to a wide variety of audiences, including youth, parents, and service providers. CSS will work with youth at Charlotte Mecklenburg  middle school and high school levels, if grant is fully funded.


Match requirements will be met through already budgeted salaries.


The request for proposals was released May 22, 2018 and is due June  12, 2018.
