Integrated in proven programming, The Be Kind Pledge defines the skills of kindness and helps students understand how to be kind in their daily lives. Kindness is at the core of how people of all ages respect, communicate with, and treat others. Because meaningful character education is an essential pillar of effective social, emotional, and academic learning, The Be Kind People Project provides students with an evidence-based learning approach so they will understand what TO do instead of what NOT to do.
