The RTC’s Roads to Respect™ Program brings prevention education to 12,000 students each year in middle schools, high schools and on college campuses. These programs empower students by teaching them how sexual assault, abuse and harassment, as well as other forms of peer mistreatment – both online and offline -- are hurtful and harmful. Students learn how to safely stand up and intervene if they witness these behaviors to prevent their peers from becoming victims.
The RTC also helps create safer schools by educating teachers and administrators about how to foster a culture of respect on their campuses and how to support students who have been victimized.
