Ripple Effect For Teens

Ripple effect for Teens is an app that teaches students the equivalent programme of PSHE (Personal and social education) found in UK schools. The app is a secure personal project based application that covers over 400 teen related tutorials from health to academic success to personal goal setting. The Ripple Effect for Teens is tailored for male or female users and suitable for ages 13 years and up. As the website suggests, “There are many right ways to use it - for systematic training, for targeted prevention, or for individualized intervention and guidance. It can be applied reactively, to deal with specific issues in a few minutes, and proactively, over time, to boost academic achievement, change behaviour, reduce substance use, and promote healthy choices. It’s designed to be used how you need it, when you need it – throughout the school and in the community.” - See more here.
