YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LASTS A LIFETIME

The Be Kind Pledge™

Integrated in proven programming, The Be Kind Pledge defines the skills of kindness and helps students understand how to be kind in their daily lives. Kindness is at the core of how people of all ages respect, communicate with, and treat others. Because meaningful character education is an essential pillar of effective social, emotional, and academic learning, The Be Kind People Project provides students with an evidence-based learning approach so they will understand what TO do instead of what NOT to do.

Be Kind has helped transform our campus into a kinder and more cohesive school community. The Be Kind People Project is about showing children, and adults that the way to spread kindness is by being kind to one another. The Be Kind Pledge gives us a common language of kindness to discuss, teach, and share.
