Instill Self-Respect to Improve Academic Outcomes for Girls

In 2013, The Respect Institute (RI) and partners committed to providing 10,000 vulnerable young women ages 11 to 18 in more than ten states through 2015 the tools and coaching, including the Respect 360 toolkit, needed to build self-respect in order to improve academic and life outcomes. The Respect Institute will train partners to integrate the Respect 360 toolkit into their girl and vulnerable youth development frameworks, which includes more than 75 activity, journal and group discussion cards that can be utilized in Respect Circles (small groups) or via a coaching process to guide youth and young adults to practice The Respect Basics. In total, the Respect 360 toolkit will be delivered by more than 500 trained educators, mentors, advisors, counselors, intervention workers, and social workers in settings such as advisory groups, after-school groups, residential programs, and mentoring sessions.

Amplifying Opportunity & Self-Respect for Young Men of Color

In 2014, The Respect Institute (RI) and partners committed to providing 1,000 young men of color ages 16-24 in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley with self-respect building coaching to improve their ability to stay connected to caring mentors and choose positive pathways. In total, RI will train 150 youth influencers – community-based educators, case workers and law enforcement officials – to use its trauma-informed and research-based Respect Basics Coaching method to transform 15 to 60 minutes “transactions” with young men into self-respect building “coaching interactions.”
