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
  • 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
