About Be Kind Online

The Be Kind Online® program is an initiative aimed at cultivating social inclusion in virtual spaces. When students enter middle school, they become more plugged into the digital world. How do we make sure they use it as a tool to empower themselves and others?

Some of the skills we aim to teach through this program:

  • Setting healthy boundaries with technology to reduce feelings of social isolation
  • Navigating body image issues and other feelings that social media triggers
  • Making new connections and being an active participant in positive online communities.
  • Using social media as a tool for activism to speak out on issues that matter most to them

Our program is provided free of charge.
