AMERICA'S TIME OUT FOR YOUTH
Adolescents sometimes develop unhealthy relationships and experience or exhibit bullying or dating violence. Our RAPSnergyTM Roundtable is designed to eradicate such behavior and explore a myriad of challenges and concerns both genders face when interacting.
RAPSnergy is a peer roundtable for junior high and high school boys and girls (12-14 and 14-18) years of age, college and undergraduate students 18-24). RAPSnergy is a forum held for the purpose of promoting respect and pride, positive life skills and synergy between the two genders. These young people along with male and female mentors, engage in positive communication as they discuss age appropriate topics, issues, concerns, challenges and aspirations of collective interests.
Mentors are drawn from the young male and female's particular communities, friends, relatives, neighbors, church and social groups as well as from the wider world of men and women and reflect rootness in realities of both the girls and young women, and boys and young men's own lives. Both genders collaborate to prepare agendas, themes, topics and questions they would like to address with the common goal of promoting the utmost in healthy relationships resulting in respect and pride between the two genders.
