Tools for Kindness
The tools, crafts, and other activities on this page are ways to get to know aspects of our educational programming and kindness activities. Use these resources in your home, classroom, or elsewhere, and enjoy!
As we navigate a changing world the practice of intentional kindness is more important than ever. Kindness is an interpersonal skill; in order to make kindness a lifestyle choice, we first need to understand our social and emotional brains.
Show the world how many acts of kindness you can do. Our “be kind challenge” can be done from anywhere and is a motivator that helps us do kindness even better. Join us HERE.

Community partner information sheets
Kindness empowers us to step up and have challenging and vulnerable conversations that may ultimately create more connected schools. Kind Campus includes information sheets from community partners that provide advice about the ways kindness can be utilized to create positive social change. With this information, teachers and staff may lead students through challenging conversations and think about how kindness can be a productive and welcoming framework to address issues of identity, inclusion, equity, and justice.
