About our program
Each participating school is provided with an all-inclusive customized Bullying Prevention program, which begins with an assembly at the start of the school year, that will teach students about bullying awareness and being kind and inclusive to others. We encourage students to be kind and helpful to those who are bullied.
We provide posters, banners, and wristbands to students. In addition, the HERO Program presents the “Be A HERO Award” to selected individuals through nominations, which are given on a quarterly basis. This award includes certificates and other promotional marketing to further encourage students to be kind to one another.
Our program will be customized to each school to meet their needs and goals agreed upon after a needs assessment is conducted by the Institute. The Institute will provide this service to as many schools based on funds and resources available. This program is provided at no cost to the school.
You can also schedule a Kindness Activity or Event, which is an activity for a single class or the entire school on a particular day. These activities are grade specific and need to be coordinated in advance. Activities could include: Kindness Cards, Kindness Wheel or a Kindness Wall.
The Institute provides these services free to schools within Riverside County, CA based on funding and resources available. We are currently taking applications for the 2019/2020 school year.
