Kind Campus Assemblies set the stage for the practice of intentional kindness in your school, and are the ideal way to celebrate your campus commitment to kindness throughout the school year. A member of the Ben’s Bells Education team will lead a 30-minute, all-school assembly that is poignant and funny and filled with science!
New for 2017-2018, Jeannette Maré presents, “Find Your Kind,” an exploration of the evolution of our brains from serving as “threat detectors” to social brains that can reason, reflect, anticipate, and imagine. Through humor, storytelling, and role-play, students and staff will learn how to harness the power of awareness and neuroplasticity to allow the practice of intentional kindness to change their experience of the world. Read more about Jeannette's Story here.
Also for 2017-2018, “Your Kind Mind: Emotional Intelligence,” focuses on how emotional awareness is foundational for the empathy and compassion that leads to kindness. This emotional intelligence allows us to draw upon the courage and careful thought required to practice intentional kindness and effect positive change in our schools, families, and communities. Audiences are left feeling inspired and are equipped with the resources they need to incorporate the practice of intentional kindness on their campus at all levels and throughout the entre school year.
Speakers include Jeannette Maré (national); Laura Gronewold, PhD (Tucson & Phoenix); Christy Brown (Phoenix); and Cody Foss (Connecticut and New York). Read more about our speakers here.
Ben’s Bells is committed to providing Kind Campus programming free to schools so that tight budgets are never a barrier to practicing kindness. In order to meet and sustain the ever-increasing demand for Kind Campus programming, however, Ben’s Bells will charge for enhancements to the programming (speaking engagements, murals, and extra materials). Schools will always be able to engage actively in Kind Campus for free and, if resources allow, may support Ben’s Bells through enhancements and fundraising.
