Be Kind Online® supports students as they learn to be authentic and compassionate online. Students will be challenged to think about whether their online behaviors match their real-life personalities. Our three Positive Prevention Initiatives – No One Eats Alone®, Know Your Classmates® and now Be Kind Online® – aim to change the culture of middle school to one of acceptance and inclusion.

This program is provided free of charge. All of the resources needed come digitally online including curriculum, presentations, videos and worksheets
