Best practices in prevention are build on effective policy and programming. Hallways consults with schools to ensure that their policies and programs advance school expectations and are responsive to student needs. Currently, we offer consultations that help schools develop or refine policies and programs in the following areas:

  • Substance Use, including Vaping

  • Peer Leadership 

  • Consent and Sexual Violence

  • Peer Leadership Consultation

  • Consent & Sexual Violence Prevention

After 30 years of serving the Independent School community in the New York City area, the board of Freedom Institute has reached the difficult decision to close Hallways and thereby end the organization's prevention programming due to its financial unsustainability. 


Hallways’ accomplishments are community accomplishments. Thank you to our many partner schools for their years of investment and dedication to our important work. Thank you to all the parents and community partners who have attended our talks, hosted events, and advocated for social-emotional learning in your schools. Thank you to the students, who showed up with vulnerability in our workshops and allowed us to learn and grow from sharing their realities with us. And finally, thank you to the Hallways team members, past and present, for all the passion, humor, thoughtfulness, and creativity you have all brought over the years. 


We are thrilled to continue the sale of  From the Inside Out: The Hallways Handbook For Raising Emotionally Healthy Adolescents
