Student Group Program

Kindness Corps

At Seeds of Caring, we believe all children have the power to make our community a kinder, more connected place to live. Our Kindness Corps program invites 2nd-4th grade student groups to use their hearts, hands, and minds to reflect and take action on a variety of community needs.

In the 2024 school year, we offer the program in Columbus, OH, with a limited invitation-only pilot occurring in Indianapolis.

Through highly interactive lessons aligned with Collaborative For Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and the State of Ohio Social and Emotional Learning Standards, children develop a sense of purpose, grow in empathy, and experience increased self-efficacy as they work together on service projects benefiting local nonprofits. This program includes a step-by-step curriculum and all needed program supplies. Perfect for classrooms, after-school programs, and kindness clubs.
