Building Healthy Relationships

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 Expression

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.

We focus on a singular trait of the Be Kind pledge each month, incorporating PKPP web resources into our morning announcements, and use the framework of BKPP when helping students understand how to redirect their undesired behaviors. Under this plan, we have seen a reduction in office referrals, an increase in kindness amongst students, and significantly positive overall impact.

We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of BKPP and all they offer to not only our community, but also society as a whole.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this program. In the four years that I have had them as part of my after school program I see a big difference in the climate of the school and the conversations that staff and students are having with each other. Each day I find opportunities to ask students if they are being respectful or responsible or a friend to another student. The message is simple, but the Be Kind Program has given us the tools to make that message, fun, engaging and impactful.

For the past three years, Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona has beena proud partner of the Be Kind People Project to bring our “Cyclefor Success” program to students and teachers across Arizona.

Thanks to the Be Kind People Project, we are able to “ride” into elementary schools to present students with new bikes, helmets and locks for all the good works and kind acts they have been doing in and around the school this year. As an added treat, Subway, Dasani Water and Shamrock Farms surprise each child’s entire class with a special lunch right in their classrooms. Program partner The Be Kind People Project not only joins in the celebration, honoring both students’ teachers for their hard work in mentoring and tirelessly teaching kindness to the community’s youth, but coordinates with partner schools statewide to spread the word on the program and help ensure its success.

We, at Scottsdale Bible Church, have been pleased to partner with The Be Kind People Project. We kicked off this partnership by providing a Be Kind Crew assembly for the entire student body. We also provided character education materials for the teachers and students for the school year. This endeavor was so successful, it has continued into the next school year with another full-school assembly, comprehensive in school character education and an after school program that was customized to the needs of the students.
