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.
  • Peer Leadership Summer Program- a seven-week, paid program that trains teens to be peer educators in their schools.

Participants in RAPP are referred by teachers, support staff, peers, or can self-refer. Day One is currently providing RAPP in seven high schools:

  • Franklin K Lane Campus, Brooklyn
  • 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
  • August Martin High School, Queens
