Before and After

I am sincere when I say that the past week of Respect 360 for more than 1,500 teens throughout Connecticut was the most enriching week I have ever spent in my 42 years in education. As a result of the program, many of the teens will be empowered to make changes that will help them develop into strong people who are confident, capable and self-reliant.

Robert Lehr, Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference

Respect 360 is extraordinary in its ability to provide fun, low-risk exercises to explore some of the most challenging issues teens face. The lessons are easy to teach and they’re full of heart. The toolkit gets teens’ attention right away. I am excited to work with this curriculum!

In my 25 years in education, I've never been to an assembly where you can hear the overhead lights buzzing at times that's how engrossed the girls were in the program.

Learning The Respect Basics, which this program emphasizes, is every bit as important as learning the basics of reading, writing and math in terms of a person’s education for a meaningful successful, and happy life.
