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.
