"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted"
One out of every four students reports being bullied during the school year, while over 64% of bullying goes unreported (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2015). This Friday, October 7th, is World Bullying Prevention Day. As this day sheds light on an epidemic that effects students of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds, reach out to your mentee and discuss the importance of kindness in and out of the classroom.
Make kindness a game! For a fun anti-bullying activity, have your mentee write down random acts of kindness on strips of colorful paper and loop them together to create a chain of kindness. Each day, have your mentee tear off one kindness loop and complete the random act of kindness. He/she can keep a log of how each act of kindness affected others and his/herself.
A World of Difference is just one act of kindness away. You and your mentee can break the chain of bullying today!
