Job Summary

Day One seeks three energetic and creative candidates to facilitate its Community Education Program in DOE middle schools participating in the Early Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (Early RAPP). Early RAPP Educators will provide workshops to students, parents and caregivers, and trainings to school staff. The Early RAPP Educators will participate in the delivery of preventive and informative workshops to end intimate partner violence at assigned schools, as well as link young people and families already experiencing such violence to direct assistance.

Day One Overview

Since 2003, Day One has been the only organization in New York devoting its full resources to preventing intimate partner violence (IPV) among young people. Day One partners with youth to end dating abuse and domestic violence through community education, supportive services, legal advocacy and leadership development. Our multi-disciplinary approach brings together a highly collaborative staff with expertise in legal, social service and education service provision. Serving New York City youth up to 24 years of age, our Direct Services Program provides direct legal representation, advice and information, individual and group counseling and case management services to clients. Through the Community Education Program, Day One educates young people in schools and youth programs about IPV, consent, and healthy relationships, and trains professionals and parents to support teens experiencing abuse. Our Youth Voices Network is a group of young survivors who conduct awareness and advocacy projects, sharing their stories to promote healing and prevention.

Day One recognizes that anti-violence work is emotionally demanding and professionally complex. We strive to create an office culture that invests in the wellness of staff and leads to employee sustainability. Office policies are designed to promote healthful practices and establish a supportive and collaborative environment for and among staff.
