A non-profit group in Genesee County called We R 3 C has developed what they say is a unique approach to character education.
It's based on the belief that kindness, compassion and empathy can only be shown consistently and spontaneously by first developing an understanding of the meaning of respect.
They're taking a curriculum based on that philosophy to area schools and youth groups.
Teaching consultant Bart Dentino developed the program and works with the organization's CEO and president Bob Purifico.
