Help Now’s Expect Respect is a 10-week, state approved teen dating violence prevention program for middle and high school youth that focuses on changing social norms about relationships and creating a respectful environment in school and at home. 

These students discover that learning about healthy relationships requires practicing skills for healthy relationships, which includes giving and getting respect. Expect Respect provides opportunities for youth to develop strong, positive relationships with peers and adults through activities that engage youth in exploring their experiences and beliefs and taking a stand against violence. The primary goal of Expect Respect is to increase the youth’s ability to choose and maintain supportive and healthy relationships and to prevent victimization and perpetration of domestic violence in the future.
