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.

Anti-bullying Resources For You

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.)

See Our Program For Yourself

A short post today about a video you really should see. Most Humanity Project friends and supporters have never had the chance to attend one of our live, in-school anti-bullying presentations. Now, though, you can view some very brief excerpts in this YouTube video.

Kids Hospital With A Heart

| May 2, 2014

Today, we thank our loyal friends at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. They have stepped up now as an official sponsor of our truly innovative I Care: Just Let Me Drive teen driver safety program. JDCH also renewed their longtime sponsorship of our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program. Both programs now will be offered through their great Community Relations Department, headed up by the dynamic Milin Espino.

THP Service Learning

| April 25, 2014

This week, a new video for you … So we won’t take much of your time with reading our blog. We hope you will want to check out this newest Humanity Project YouTube video, though. You’ll hear a brief discussion by one of our great student volunteers, a young high school student named Aaron. The video is only about one minute-long. In it, Aaron talks about his work on the amazing redesign of our Humanity Project website for socially isolated students, including many LGBT kids. That site is www.thp4kids.com (The Humanity Project 4 Kids). Listen to Aaron describe how much he has learned by working with the Humanity Project. We’re proud of the service learning opportunities that we’ve provided to many students — middle school and high school students, even some in elementary school. Click on the link to watch the video, please. We think you’ll enjoy it.
