About Us

OUR MISSION

To encourage healthy respect of self and others through educational programs and relevant connections to the community.

OUR VISION

1

To educate students at no cost at, (including but not limited to), public and private schools, about the topics of healthy self-respect and healthy respect of others.

2

To empower those that live with and work with teenagers with information on topics of healthy self-respect and healthy respect of others.

3

To engage with applicable and reputable youth organizations in order to provide connections for students outside educational programs provided within the classroom.

PERSONAL JOURNEY

Prior to the founding of our organization in 2015, founders, Scott Haddix and Amy Hanna, were motivational speakers in Fort Wayne, IN and surrounding area schools. They spoke to thousands of teenagers in area public and private high schools and middle schools about the importance of healthy relationships. Because they desired to provide authentic and relevant presentations at no cost to schools, and because the teachers at each of the represented schools wanted them to impact their students with a well-rounded message of RESPECT, they decided to expand their curriculum and form a non-profit speaking organization called the RespectTeam.

FUTURE PROJECTION

As our speaking team continues to grow, we look forward to having a presence in all Fort Wayne and surrounding area high schools and middle schools. Our vision is not held to the boundaries of the Three Rivers Area and we would love to see the message of respect be spread throughout the Northeast Indiana region and beyond. We believe that in order for us to spread the message of self-respect and respect of others that it must start with the youth in the community. Respectful youth grow into respectful adults and the combination of the two will shape a respectful community.
