Roads to Respect™ School Programs
The Rape Treatment Center’s Roads to Respect™ prevention education programs reach thousands of students each year in middle schools, high schools, and on college campuses. These programs foster empathy, social responsibility, and moral courage. Students learn about impacts of sexual assault/abuse/harassment and other forms of peer mistreatment, online and offline; effective prevention strategies; and how to safely intervene if they are witnesses in situations in which they could help prevent their peers from being victimized. These values and skills are the foundation for healthy, safe relationships. Roads to Respect™ programs also inform students about the importance of support in the aftermath of victimization and how to get help if they and/or their friends are victimized. These programs empower students to be leaders and agents of change within their schools and other peer communities.
