Taking Kindness to the Next Level

Why Kindness Curriculum?

As you may or may not know, each year Life Vest Inside hosts Dance for Kindness, a global event to kickoff World Kindness week. We have schools from across the world joining us in this exciting celebration, many of which run the program through their Phys Ed department.

Due to the high demand of schools to continue spreading kindness even after Dance for Kindness has concluded, we have developed a year round Kindness Curriculum comprised of 4 activities (within arts and humanities: music, art, dance and community project). The Curriculum aligns with the Common Core State Standards making it easy to implement into the school setting. In addition, we provide schools with a Kindness Kit, filled with materials, resources and tools to help schools create an atmosphere of kindness in their school.

What Others are Saying

Testimonials

“Being a Group Leader for Dance for Kindness convinced me of the power of Kindness to change the world because it has changed me. Through the Dance for Kindness leadership program, I was given an opportunity to develop my organization, communication, and event planning skills. This program challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, to grow and to communicate with people, asking them for help and support. It has helped me be aware that I am capable of doing great things. Group Leaders are well supported with resources, tools, and advice from past and current leaders from all over the world. Applying to become a Group Leader will challenge you, help you to grow, change you and in turn change the world to become a better place.” – Stéphanie, Niainahariravaka – Antananarivo, Madagascar

“My event just took place and my heart is SO full! Our community rallied around to support and participate in the event. It was truly a group effort. This experience brought us all together for a common purpose and knowing that we were linked to 50+ other countries all doing the same, creates a global bond that we wouldn’t have experienced without this DFK opportunity.” – Andrea Johnston, Huntsville, Canada

“Being a Group Leader allowed me to witness first hand what a community is all about; how people come together to help out, how they support one another and how they lift the spirits of everyone around them.” – Lana Mahmoud, Group Leader, Amman, Jordan
