Delaware County School Based Programs

The Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) offers a wide range of free educational programs to all public, private, and parochial schools in Delaware County. These programs can reduce bullying and dating violence by providing clear, age-appropriate, and accurate information to youth of all ages in an engaging way. All programs can be adapted to meet the needs of a specific class or school and include a mixture of stories, interactive activities, role plays, discussions, videos, games, and worksheets. DAP staff can provide single programs to a class or a carefully selected curriculum to a class, afterschool program or group of children that are identified by teachers, principals or school counselors as needing some extra attention.
