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
  • Edward R Murrow High School, Brooklyn
  • Academy for Conservation and the Environment, Brooklyn
  • Health Opportunities High School, Bronx
  • High School for Environmental Studies, Manhattan
  • Essex Street Academy, Manhattan
  • High School for Service and Learning at Erasmus Campus, Brooklyn
  • Marie Curie High School for Medicine, Nursing, & Health Professions, Bronx
