Our Year of Kindness Program provides students with a framework for how to be kind, compassionate, empathetic, engaged citizens and leaders. We provide students with concrete actions they can take to create a friendlier, more resilient school community. The entire program is geared at empowering the students to get involved and make a difference. There are also awesome feedback functions built into the program that allow teachers, parents and community members to tell the students how proud everyone is of the great work they are doing. This demonstrates to the students that their entire community values kindness.
Our Year of Kindness program is an excellent complement to any anti-bullying initiatives being undertaken in the school. It takes the important message of anti-bullying, and goes even deeper, providing children with positive actions that they can take to be powerful Upstanders who actively look for ways to help.
Join us in our Year of Kindness Program and we will work together to grow a culture of kindness in your school.
