Abstract

This paper introduces RALLY (Responsive Advocacy for Learning and Life in Youth), a new program developed to serve both the academic and psychosocial needs of at-risk adolescents in the classroom setting. RALLY is a collaboration between the Boston Public Schools and the Harvard Graduate School of Education's Risk and Prevention Program, as well as the Consolidated Psychiatry Department of Harvard Medical School and McLean and Massachusetts General Hospitals. It utilizes university practicum students in a new professional role as" prevention practitioners" who promote resilience in at-risk children by forming relationships with them, performing interventions in classrooms to foster academic skills, interacting collaboratively with teachers, and helping at-risk children to integrate the multiple parts of their lives. This article describes the theoreti­cal model and the implementation and evaluation of the program.
