CULTIVATING RESILIENCE THROUGH KINDNESS TRAINING MATERIALS
Don't expect kindness in schools—teach it!
We'll show you how!
We are very proud to announce that all of our training materials are available online so that anyone can use them! Much of the training is focused on self-care for educators. Specifically, building resilience, gratitude, kindness and reconnecting them to what they do best—teaching. (That’s why we titled the training “Cultivating Resilience Through Kindness”.)
We hope you take the time to check out the new training! If you aren’t an educator, consider using it (with a few tweaks) where you work. The activities can be used anywhere, really.
Better yet, share these materials with educators you know! The training (and the curriculum) is fun and will benefit anyone who participates because all the activities and information are based on scientific research. We invite you to share your feedback with us at firstname.lastname@example.org

What educators & students are saying about our materials:
I'm so tired of my students being disconnected to each other, to their teachers, to their families. Today we had a student expelled for using the n-word. When I discussed the incident with my class, they said that they hear that EVERY DAY! I was shocked. I want to make a change in my school. I want them to look up from their phones, connect to other people, and be kind.
Students and teachers at my school can always include and receive more kindness in their lives and I want to help them do that.
I believe the next generation of children and even adults need to be reminded that there is goodness in the world, especially with all the tragedy. I am a school counselor and would like to bring more RAK ideas to my campus.
Working in all girls' boarding I am increasingly concerned that social media and pressures young girls are facing day to day are having a huge impact on heir ability to form healthy relationships. I am hoping that by introducing [Kindness in the Classroom] to the boarding house, girls will begin to be more outward looking at their behaviour and try to overcome the difficulties they face as an age group.
I want to be a better example to my family, especially my 13-year old daughter, of how to spread kindness and peace in our lives.
I want to teach and lead by example kindness for my students.
As a school counselor, I have noticed the change in our middle school students through the years. We have more conflict among students and hurtful words thrown out without a thought as to the damage inflicted on others. I would like to spark a change in our students.
I learned that you can always be kind to somebody. There is always time.
These lessons were easy to teach and well organized. Thanks for offering them for free!
