Respect Effect is an app that encourages young people to build healthy relationship skills by completing daily challenges with their significant others, friends, and families. Users can share their completed challenges on the Community Feed, earn points to get on the Leaderboard, and view their friends' challenges.

The Respect Effect app provides teens with a fun way to engage with significant others/friends in order to discuss healthy relationships and teen dating violence. Examples of challenges include:

  • Let your SO or best friend teach you how to cook their favorite meal and snap a picture.
  • Take a video of yourself saying "no" with gusto.
  • Unfollow people on your social media channels who give you negative energy.

Fun challenges help to build young people's relationship skills in order to create more respectful relationships and digital communities where collective action inspires a respect effect.

Download Respect Effect from the App Store or Google Play. Users can either create an account or link to their Facebook profiles.
