The Humanity Project

To create and implement innovative programs that teach children and adults how to use cooperation and social connection for individual development and grassroots community improvement

“Humanity Club”

| February 8, 2016

We’re announcing something new today … the birth of our “Humanity Club” for kids. It’s a program that allows us to teach student leaders about ideas such as self-value, leadership, diversity and compassion for others. We work with the students to develop creative methods to carry those ideas to their fellow students, showing peers why every kid at their school should feel like they belong. It’s another example of our Humanity Project slogan in action, “Helping kids to help kids.” It is the Humanity Project leading a small group of kids who will assist their fellow students in valuable ways.

Humanity’s Elevator

| January 28, 2016

Sometimes it’s hard to find exactly the right words. If someone asks you, “What’s the Humanity Project?” … how would you answer? Well, we have a suggestion today in this brief post. They call it an “elevator speech.” It’s what folks who run a business create to tell others about their work quickly, something so brief they could say it in the time it takes to ride an elevator with someone. So here’s our suggestion for your Humanity Project elevator speech:

Kids Helping Kids

| January 13, 2016

You can see the Humanity Project’s trademarked slogan on our home page above: “Helping kids to help kids!” When you think of the Humanity Project, remember this phrase. That’s who we are. We help kids to help kids. So let me begin 2016 by explaining a bit more about why that’s true.

Hope For 2016

| December 30, 2015

There is so much good reason for hope. There seems so much good reason for despair. As we prepare to begin 2016, I wanted to offer a few thoughts that some may find encouraging. I often find the need to remind myself about all the uplifting things, the encouraging things … yes, the hopeful things happening around us every day.

Humanity Project Turns 10!

| November 1, 2015

On November 3, 2005, the State of Florida incorporated a new nonprofit organization called the Humanity Project. As the Humanity Project’s founder, I paid the state fees out of my own pocket — and paid for just about everything else too for the next few years. As this group turns 10-years-old, I’m proud of what its become. And we hope you’ll help us to celebrate during our two-month, holiday-time 10 year anniversary party, something we’re calling the “10 By 10 Humanity Party.” Meaning, “10 years and 10 dollars” for our cause. That’s all we’re asking you for. Just ten dollars, tax-deductible.

Stopping School Violence

| September 5, 2015

This will be a very brief post — for a very good reason. I’m hoping you’ll click on the link at the end of this sentence and spend your Internet time listening to a special podcast rather than reading a longer blog today. Here’s that podcast link: Listen to our podcast, “Stopping School Violence.”

Teaching Kids To Share

| August 14, 2015

Children must be taught to share. Children of all ages, from infancy through high school. That’s one of the things we do at the Humanity Project — helping kids to help kids by working with them to share their talents and knowledge with peers. We do this by helping them create programs that curb distracted driving, reduce bullying and ease social isolation. We help kids to help kids by teaching them to share.

Into The Community

| April 5, 2015

More and more, the Humanity Project is getting out and getting in … Out into the community, in conversations with kids and moms and dads and teachers and nonprofit colleagues at events around South Florida. Of course, we’ve always done our best to connect with our neighbors. But now we’re just doing a lot more of it.
