What is The Respect Program?  

The Respect Program is a free educational assembly program that teaches students about respect for people, property and the environment. This interactive assembly is geared toward second through fifth graders and meets many of the Pennsylvania Department of Education academic standards.  The program was developed in 2007 and since its inception has been presented to over 100,000 students in hundreds of schools across southeastern Pennsylvania.
