This session during Remake Learning Days will be an introductory session with some of our excellent Teen Volunteers working with your children to discuss the meaning of kindness and its many manifestations, both large and small. Together let's practice kindness.
The Keeping Up With Kindness program was created in response to the tragic shooting on October 27, 2018 at the Tree of Life Synagogue building. This initiative brings exemplary teen role models to K-5th grade classrooms to teach and engage children in mindful group discussions and lessons focusing on the importance of being kind to one another, embracing diversity and standing up against bullying.
The program is built as a four part classroom series where teen volunteers, bringing a passion for promoting acts of kindness, facilitate an engaging, interactive, and collaborative conversation with young students in a safe, communicative and friendly academic environment to teach and nurture a more just society that values, above all, kindness and respect for each other.
