Change Your School or Organization with myWorth

myWorth is a free, accessible, and personal experience created by the iRespect&Protect team. Learn about yourself, your worth, and how cell phones and the internet have an influence on your life.

myWorth can be customized to fit with all groups. Our current focus:

  • Elementary Students (Pilot in Spring 2022)
  • Middle School Students (Currently Piloting at the 6th Grade Level)
  • High School Students (Pilot in Winter 2022)
  • Facilitator Training (Available September 2021)

About myWorth

These activities were developed for schools or other youth-serving organizations to supplement your current curriculums.

An easy-to-follow facilitator guide and rich PowerPoint slides allow a facilitator (older youth or adult) to walk participants through safe conversations about our unique gifts as humans, the importance of relationships, and connecting the influence of cell phones and our online choices on our self-worth and happiness.
