Student Team Takes Charge

| September 17, 2014

The Humanity Project long has worked closely with students — in many different ways. Now in the 2014-15 school year we have a great team of student volunteers through a new high school, all focused on spreading the word about our truly innovative I Care: Just Let Me Drive program.

Celebrate My Drive

| August 28, 2014

As the school year begins, our friends at State Farm are busy working with students as usual. And as their partner in helping prevent teen traffic accidents, the Humanity Project is happy to help promote State Farm’s 2014 edition of the Celebrate My Drive campaign.

Anti-bullying That Sticks Inside Young Minds

| August 12, 2014

We were very pleased to get yet more confirmation recently that our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program works — and sticks in the minds of kids for a long time! We received a lovely email from a guidance counselor who has twice brought the Humanity Project into her elementary school to do our program. And we wanted to share that email with you here:

School Bell About To Ring

| August 1, 2014

As we enter August, the Humanity Project looks forward to busy days ahead. Very busy indeed. That’s because much of our work takes place in the schools, one way or another. We present our Anti-bullying Through The Arts program to elementary school kids. We take our I Care: Just Let Me Drive program to high school students. And our great new website for socially isolated youth, www.thp4kids.com, will be heavily promoted in the 2014-15 school year too, with an eye toward attracting more young people who can benefit from this student-created resource. We often work with students to create our programs, like the group of kids in that photo to the right. They performed in our first big anti-bullying music video, which now is used around the United States and Canada.

Public Supports Tough Ban On Texting-&-Driving

| July 24, 2014

Kayla’s Song

| July 16, 2014

Can you spare 53 seconds? Just 53 seconds to watch something inspiring? Yes, of course, I know. We’re all busy. Very busy. And we’re all inundated with this and that coming to us through our computers. This joke from a friend, that link from a colleague. Or whatever. But this particular link is something created by a special student who has worked with the Humanity Project for the past three years.

Anti-bullying Resources For You

| July 8, 2014

Yes, indeed. The Humanity Project’s highly regarded Anti-bullying Through The Arts program has generated many free materials to help you deal with bullying, especially if you’re a parent worried about aggression in school. Those resources are as close as another mouse click.

Bullying And Physical Illness: The Connection

(Editor’s Note: This blog was written and provided to the Humanity Project by Lisa Bonet, a writer on mental health issues. We believe it focuses on a little understood consequence of bullying. A portion of the article and a link to the full story by Ms. Bonet are included in the post below.)
