Dilcia Erazo is a RAPP Coordinator at Day One. During the academic year she implements the Relationship Abuse Prevention Program at Marie Curie School for Medicine, Nursing, and Health Professions which includes: trauma-informed counseling, educational workshops for students, parents and staff, and the development of a peer leadership program to promote healthy relationships in the school community. In the summer months, Dilcia plans and facilitates an intensive peer leadership training program where young people gain knowledge and skills to be supportive peers and agents of social change in the movement to end intimate partner violence.
After Dilcia got her bachelor's in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, her encounters with social workers during significant moments in her life influenced her to pursue a masters degree in social work. Dilcia received her Master’s in Social Work at Hunter’s Silberman School of Social Work with a focus on community organizing, planning and development. Her field of interest was in working with immigrants and people impacted by trauma. In fifth grade, Dilcia wrote a short children story which won a contest and was published but she never received royalties for it.
