Student and Youth Leadership
Day One sees young people as experts in their own lives, and sees youth leadership development as a core method of building the next generation of leaders in the movement to end intimate partner violence.
Young people can get involved in leadership activities in a variety of ways. In the summer, Peer Leaders participate in the RAPP Summer Peer Leadership Institute, where they participate in training and connect with peers from schools across the city. The goal is for students to work together to learn about dating violence and healthy relationships, and to become peer educators and advocates with each other and at their schools.
During the school year, peer leaders and other students come together through group development and activities to lift up topics that are important to them. Peer/Youth Leaders also coordinate and develop awareness campaigns about issues they identify as meaningful to themselves and other young people.
