About the challenge:

Sometimes it feels like we could all be more kind. Whether you are parent, teacher, or adult, you are one of the biggest influences on children and can play a significant role in how they treat others. Children watch what we do and follow in our footsteps. They depend on us to show them how to be caring and help others, and no matter how old a child is, now is the perfect time to start teaching them how to be kind.
Doing acts of kindness will not only show kids how to be kind to others but also show them how to help others. By doing these small and simple acts of kindness with children, you will not only teach them about compassion but also how easy it is to be kind to others.

Be The Change Challenge


Doing random acts of kindness is easy and fun! To start the 30-Day Be The Change Challenge with your youth, you can create your own ideas or start with the list we have below. There are more than 50 ideas listed on the challenge sheet. For the next 30 days, choose 1 of the items to do with your kids each day.
When an act of kindness is completed, put a check-mark next to that item.
