A note from our Executive Director:
"I couldn’t be happier that we are shifting our focus to respect this month. Commitment to this important pillar of character is needed now more than ever. We live in a day where the demonstration of respect is devalued. Incivility is rampant; self-interest often trumps thoughtfulness; our leaders display rancor instead of mutual respect. Respect is a cornerstone of success for all of us. Put simply, respect is character-in-action.
I believe that our lessons this month will have a particular impact, as the students we serve can immediately implement the skills that are shared with them. To our Character Coaches, your capacity to teach respect extends beyond the words you say. As a meaningful role model in your students’ lives, you are an example of a respectful life."
