Our Rachael’s First Week ICE program was created to help with the transition as teens launch into life after high school.
We strive to equip teens with the skills and knowledge to make good decisions.

Rachael’s First Week ICE Program

ICE stands for Intensive Classroom ExperienceThis program is designed for small in-class settings and focuses on a single safety topic. The students are asked to listen to one of our SafeTEA podcast episodes as an in-class or homework assignment. The next day our team comes into the classroom and does a deep dive into that topic, reinforcing the primary concepts presented in the podcast. By having students participate in activities and role play we assess their retention on the subject.

Our podcast series is evidence based and designed to address the major contributors of morbidity and mortality among adolescents based on CDC’s Youth Behavior Risk Surveillance survey (YRBSS).  Rather than do a broad brush covering multiple risky behaviors as we address in the convocation form of RFW LIVE! program, we target a single topic.  To date, we have podcasts covering  Rachael’s Story, Alcohol and the Life Line Law, Depression in college, Hazing, Eating Disorders, Organ Donation, Bystander Effect, Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking among college students.  Visit our podcast page often as we continue to add new podcast episodes throughout the year.

About Rachael’s First Week

Rachael’s First Week LIVE! is a program dedicated to protecting the lives of high school seniors and college freshmen as they transition into young adult women and men. 

These can be tumultuous years when peers often look to each other for guidance as they encounter novel and potentially dangerous situations, rather than engaging experienced mentors to provide solutions. 

The mission of Rachael’s First Week is to develop the decision-making skills of teens as they enter this time of monumental change in their lives.
