Learning may look different but the need for kindness hasn’t changed.


Teach Kindness

Kindness is a powerful, common sense solution to some of schools’ and society’s biggest challenges. By teaching kids to practice kindness on a regular basis and manage their emotions, actions, and statements, they become better equipped to navigate our complex world.


Research Proves:

Kindness Works

Recent research demonstrates how schools that intentionally and systematically teach kindness enhance students’ sense of safety, support, and acceptance. As a result, more students succeed in school and in life. We can prove it.


The Challenge:

Teach Kindness is a unique collaboration among leading education organizations, distinguished teachers, and acclaimed researchers. It provides access to research-based tools and resources, free of charge, to those who want to incorporate kindness into the school day and make kindness a practical, commonplace skill.


Teaching Kindness

Students and teachers at Waltersville School chose empathy as a theme during the Teach Kindness challenge. They share the impact that mindfulness of words and actions played in making their community more kind.
