We are a nonprofit on a mission to empower kids to change the world by teaching them how to be kind and brave. Through our free school kindness assemblies, our kindness curriculum, after school programs, and summer camps we teach students social-emotional skills including conflict resolution, emotion regulation, empathy, bravery, self-awareness, responsible decision-making, social awareness and resilience. We help foster positive connections with peers and coach students in self-calming and mindfulness techniques; essential life skills kids need to succeed in the classroom, as they grow and as they enter the workforce as adults.
