Become a ReDo Day SponsorPartner with your local schools to bring the ReDo message of Respect in Action
Why ReDo Day is Important
ReDo Day seeks to help students and adults alike understand that respect is an action. For positive change to occur in a school community, each person must make the choice to build others up instead of tearing others down. ReDo Day has programs for junior high and high school students. Each program addresses different issues based on the issues faced by that particular school grade. These programs enforce the idea that we need to understand other people’s stories and give the gift of respect to everyone we meet. Through sharing stories and participating in small groups, students learn that everyone is struggling with something and that they have a choice to make life a little better (or a little worse) for the people around them.
After a student has been through ReDo Day, they show respect in action by committing to:
- Respect their peers
- Engage the people around them and learning their stories
- Defend those they see being bullied
- Overcome stereotypes
How You Can Help
There’s a lot that goes into making ReDo Day happen and your local school(s) could use your support. Here are some areas where you can help:
Financial Support – For ReDo Day to be effective, we limit the size of the group to 200 students or less. Because of the cost, many schools can only offer a single ReDo event to a small portion of the student population. We have found that it is best for an entire grade to participate in ReDo each year to build a community of respect. If your business or organization would like to sponsor or contribute to a ReDo event, please fill out the contact form below and our ReDo Coordinator will be in touch with you.
Food Donations – The ReDo program lasts the entire school day so there is a quick break for lunch in the middle of the day. Most school’s have lunch for the students that participate. If you or your business would like to contribute to the cost of lunch for the students, or provide beverages or snacks, please click the link below.
Adult Volunteers – ReDo Day works best when there is a 5:1 ratio of students to adults for small groups. For a group of 200, that means that 40 adult volunteers are needed. If you would like to participate in ReDo as an adult volunteer, please click the link below.
