To encourage healthy respect of self and others through educational programs and relevant connections to the community.
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.
To empower those that live with and work with teenagers with information on topics of healthy self-respect and healthy respect of others.
To engage with applicable and reputable youth organizations in order to provide connections for students outside educational programs provided within the classroom.
For the past several years, our team has been motivational speakers in Fort Wayne, IN and surrounding area schools. We have spoken to thousands of teenagers in over 25 area public and private high schools and middle schools about the importance of healthy self-respect and healthy respect of others. Because we desire to provide authentic and relevant presentations at no cost to schools, and because the teachers at each of our represented schools want us to impact their students with a message of RESPECT, we decided to form a non-profit speaking organization called the RespectTeam.
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 will make respectful adults and the combination of the two will shape a respectful community.
