Teach Kindness (formally known as the Middle School Kindness Challenge) is a program Stand for Children launched a few years ago to support schools in improving culture by intentionally teaching and fostering life skills related to kindness. Registration for our free, four-week program is now open to any school with a combination of grades K-8. We’ve added elementary school classroom content from some of the country’s leading experts, like Second Step and Harvard.
Last spring, Milliken Middle School in Milliken, Colorado was one of five schools across the country recognized for their work to improve school climate and foster a safe and supportive environment for all students. They were awarded $1,000 in Donors Choose credits to support their work.
We've heard from educators that Teach Kindness is making a positive difference at their schools and you can hear from students too! Check out this short video to hear students talk about how Teach Kindness changed their lives.
We know you want your school to be a place where every child feels safe, accepted, and appreciated and Teach Kindness can help with that. You can begin the free, 30-day program anytime within the semester, and each teacher chooses from over 50 lessons to best suit their classroom.
