A Be Kind School

Through innovative and culturally relevant youth development programs and services, The Be Kind People Project initiates social change in schools, improves the overall learning environment, and equips students with the tools they need to:

Build positive and healthy relationship skills

  • Take accountability for respectful actions and acceptance of others
  • Achieve to high personal standards to their capabilities
  • Extend appreciation to their school, family, and community
  • Form responsible and enduring societal values.


Building Healthy Relationship Skills

Themes of The Be Kind Pledge™ form the foundation for active learning for students, with a focus on respectful interpersonal relationships.   Robust recognition programs provide reinforcement for students and teachers, and Classroom Kindness Kits™  are distributed quarterly with materials and supplies for pay-it-forward projects.


Academic Improvement

Presented with the attitude and energy of The Be Kind Crew™ , current state and federal academic learning standards are reinforced with  grade-specific, ready-to-use lessons, contests, and monthly challenges that integrate character education and academic skills.


Community and Family Engagement

The important values of respect, personal responsibility, and gratitude are reinforced with regular civic awareness and service projects designed to help students learn and then practice how to extend the values of kindness into the community and in their personal lives as they grow into adult citizens and leaders.


Creative Exercise

Through the culturally relevant language of urban dance, spoken word poetry, personal expression, and movement, The Be Kind Crew provides interactive and memorable programs and school assemblies that help kids understand it really IS cool to be kind.
