Join us on zoom to learn about Classrooms Without Borders’ Keeping Up With Kindness program and how you can get involved! This event is for high school students only.
In the meantime, be sure to apply to volunteer with us this year here: https://cwbpgh.org/forms/keeping-up-with-kindness-volunteer-application/

The Keeping Up With Kindness program was created by Lauren Haffner in response to the tragic shooting on October 27, 2018 at the Tree of Life Synagogue building. This initiative brings exemplary teen role models to K-5th grade classrooms to teach and engage children in mindful group discussions and lessons focusing on the importance of being kind to one another, embracing diversity and standing up against bullying.

The program is built as a four part classroom series where teen volunteers, bringing a passion for promoting acts of kindness, facilitate an engaging, interactive, and collaborative conversation with young students in a safe, communicative and friendly academic environment to teach and nurture a more just society that values, above all, kindness and respect for each other.

At this meeting, we’ll learn a bit more about the program and have the opportunity to meet returning volunteers!
