Respect 360

RESPECT 360 is a Middle School Lunch Club that has been adopted through Project Cornerstone and is facilitated by parent volunteers and the School Counselor, Melissa Mabe. We are currently in it's second year at EDS.
 
The mission of the Respect Institute is to make respect the status quo. A simple effective curriculum is used to give youth and their influencers the tools to redefine respect and build self-respect so that they can break cycles of disrespect and thrive (The Respect Institute, 2017). 
 
Our hope is that this club can be looked at as a safe-space where middle school students feel comfortable to share their personal experiences without being judged. Several lessons are discussed to help students respect their peers, adults and ultimately themselves; in order to build a stronger community.
