Project JOVEN is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Phase I of the study aims to develop, refine and manualize this culturally-specific, school-based, and theoretically grounded teen dating violence prevention program for Hispanic 9th graders, including components for parents and school personnel. Phase II will pilot test the program to assess its feasibility and acceptability and evaluate it to determine the preliminary efficacy when compared to a no-intervention control group in preventing and reducing the occurrence of teen dating violence and affecting mediators that have been found to be risk or protective factors for teen dating violence.
