A Call to Men created the Live Respect: Coaching Healthy and Respectful Manhood program to help mentors educate and encourage middle and high school boys to examine their attitudes and beliefs about masculinity. The goal of the Live Respect program is to provide educators and mentors with tools to help raise awareness about gender stereotyping and prevent the use of violence and abusive behaviors, while teaching nonviolent and respectful behavior.

A Call to Men recognizes that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women and girls are rooted in the ways females have been traditionally viewed and treated in our society. Live Respect builds on the growing body of research that shows that men and boys who adhere to rigid, traditional notions of gender roles and masculinity are more likely to report having used violence against a partner.

The lessons included in the curriculum, along with modeling positive behavior, educators and other adults influencers influencers can help boys better understand how to form healthy, respectful relationships with women and girls and give them the tools and strategies to do so.
