Once again Lewis Central High School will partner with Youth Frontiers to bring the Respect Retreat™ to our sophomore class.  Since 1987 Youth Frontiers, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in Minneapolis, has been partnering with schools to build positive communities where students can thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. Their vision is to change the way young people treat each other in every hallway, lunch line, and classroom of every school in America so that today’s young people make tomorrow’s world better. 


During the Respect Retreat, the Youth Frontiers retreat staff will focus on creating a more positive school community by engaging students in a variety of activities that build students’ confidence, sense of self-worth, and empathy.  The activities and discussion all center around respect and teaching safe ways to help prevent bullying. Youth Frontiers has four goals that drive the retreat. First, enhance social-emotional learning competencies like empathy and conflict resolution.  Second, connect students to classmates, teachers, and school. Third, challenge students to act with kindness, courage, and respect. Finally, engage learners of all styles and backgrounds.  

The learning is not limited to our sophomore class.  Junior and senior leaders are trained to work alongside the staff to engage younger students in the activities and guide small group discussions on topics of respect and kindness.


The Respect Retreat also supports Lewis Central High School’s three Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support pillars of success:  Respect, Responsibility, and Initiative.


The Respect Retreat will take place Friday, September 20, starting at 8:30 in the large gym.
