Commitment to Action

Amplifying Opportunity & Self-Respect for Young Men of Color

Commitment by

The Respect Institute

In 2014, The Respect Institute (RI) and partners committed to providing 1,000 young men of color ages 16-24 in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley with self-respect building coaching to improve their ability to stay connected to caring mentors and choose positive pathways. In total, RI will train 150 youth influencers - community-based educators, case workers and law enforcement officials - to use its trauma-informed and research-based Respect Basics Coaching method to transform 15 to 60 minutes 'transactions' with young men into self-respect building 'coaching interactions.'
