We have a waiting list of schools wanting and needing anti-bullying and school safety programs. Traditionally, tight school budgets have prevented many schools from meeting their students' needs in this area. That's why we're reaching out to corporate sponsors and local business for help. Thank you to all of our partners who are helping to change the culture in schools.
Be sure to check out our sponsors and give them your support!
Get involved, Take a stand.
Our goal is to change the climate in schools with kindness by teaching empathy, respect, self esteem, integrity, and creating a culture of kindness. Register your school with Stand4Kind to let your students enter our monthly contest, giving them an incentive to spread kindness.
We provide participating schools with our kindness toolkit to promote the program around campus. We also help schools secure funding for anti-bullying assemblies, software and other safety initiatives through our partners, sponsors and grants. Contact us today for more information.
Kindness starts at home, so don't forget to talk to your child about the importance of treating others with respect.

It is critical that parents do all they can to sustain a good relationship and open communication with their children.
