Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP)
Day One’s Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) partners with high schools across New York City to provide critical teen dating violence prevention and intervention.
Each school hosts a Day One RAPP Coordinator, a licensed master social worker, who provides:
Trauma informed individual and group counseling
Classroom workshops to educate school population on relationship abuse
Professional development for teachers and school staff
Community outreach to youth, parents, and community members
Participants in RAPP are referred by teachers, support staff, peers, or can self-refer.
Summer Peer Leadership Institute (SPLI)
SPLI is a paid, seven-week leadership program that trains peer leaders, who applied to be a part of the summer program, to be educators in their schools. They are given the opportunity to develop leadership skills and tools for community engagement and activism. Over the duration of the program, students develop a heightened understanding of topics pertaining to social justice, ending relationship abuse and sexual violence, and engaging their communities in social change.
Day One is currently providing RAPP in eight high schools:
High School for Construction Trades, Engineering, and Architecture, Queens (Follow @CTEA.RAPP on Instagram)
Edward R Murrow High School, Brooklyn (Follow @MurrowRAPP on Instagram!)
Academy for Conservation and the Environment, Brooklyn
