The Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) is an innovative school-based teen dating violence intervention and prevention program. RAPP is the largest primary prevention program in the United States. The mission of RAPP is to promote healthy dating and peer relationships, educate adolescents on the warning signs of unhealthy and abusive relationships, provide trauma-informed counseling and empower young adults to be upstanders in the fight against dating violence and community violence.
Colleen MacPhee, a licensed master-level social worker, is the coordinator of RAPP at Facing History High School. Ms. MacPhee offers direct services to adolescents who have trauma histories, relational concerns or questions. Ms. MacPhee is located in Room 275H, Tuesdays-Fridays. Ms. MacPhee, who has specific training in working with adolescents and survivors of trauma, works for STEPS to End Family Violence. RAPP is funded through the City of New York, Human Resources Administration.
1 in 3 adolescents in the United States is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.
1 in 10 high school students have been intentionally hit, slapped or physically hurt by their dating partner.
Girls and women between the ages of 16-24 years old experience the highest rate of dating violence--almost TRIPLE the national average.
81% of parents believe teen dating violence is not an issue OR admit that they do not know if it is an issue.
