It’s a new school semester … and of course, the Humanity Project is quickly back among the students. One of the programs we teach is Anti-bullying Through The Arts, our acclaimed anti-bullying effort, and we wasted no time in getting this to a new group of elementary school kids. Our first program of the Winter-Spring 2013 session took place only three days after the new semester got underway.

They say old friends are the best friends. Two of the Humanity Project’s close longtime supporters have come through for us again within the past several days. We think it’s important that you know how terrific these folks really are. Let’s start with Children’s Services Council of Broward County. A tax-funded entity, CSC serves agencies and individuals working to help kids in Broward County, Florida. … Then there’s Dr. David Sharaf, one of the top practitioners of dermatology in South Florida. Like CSC, he is a wonderful friend and sponsor of the Humanity Project — and we can’t thank him enough.

The Humanity Project is very proud of our list of sponsors. They include State Farm and Broward Sheriff’s Office, the largest fully accredited sheriff’s department in the United States. Our sponsors also include Google, Children’s Services Council of Broward County, Dr. David Sharaf, Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation — and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital among others. You can find the full list at this link: http://thehumanityproject.com/sponsors/. On Halloween, we joined the good folks at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (JDCH) for another of their community open houses. What fun!

Hard to believe it’s already summer vacation for the schools. But we all know how quickly these summers come and go. So we’re hoping you’ll talk to your school now — and suggest they bring the Humanity Project anti-bullying program to their kids in the fall. Remember, it’s a totally free program for elementary school students. Our sponsors and partners and members subsidize the cost.

We were back at it just today. on a rainy Monday morning as I post this blog. Less than two hours ago, we were finishing up our latest Humanity Project in-school session. This time, we were in the elementary schools again to teach our highly praised Anti-bullying Through The Arts program to hundreds of kids at Plantation Elementary in Plantation, Florida. This community is a large suburb of Fort Lauderdale, right between Miami and West Palm Beach. The kids were great! We gave our program to every child in the school: pre-K through grade 5.
The Humanity Project’s Gabriela Pinto talks with Plantation Elementary kids before our programThey enjoyed it, applauded it, clapped with our music and laughed at our jokes. More importantly, we’re sure they will remember our important lessons. And we’ll soon have the pre-post test scores back, results that in the past have proven that the young kids learned from our program

They say gratitude is among the more important qualities for human well-being. At the Humanity Project, we believe that’s true. And we indeed are grateful at this organization for many things — including the wonderful friends we have. One of those friends is Children’s Services Council of Broward County. For the fourth consecutive year, CSC is sponsoring the anti-bullying efforts of the Humanity Project. Today, we’re sending out our most sincere gratitude to everyone there. Thank you!

The Humanity Project wants to help your school. Bring our Anti-bullying Through The Arts program to the elementary students in your life. If you look down a couple of blog posts below this one, you can read a bit more about our acclaimed program. It truly is acclaimed — by educators, counselors, prevention specialists, even the news media. With the holidays upon us, we won’t be back in the schools until 2012. But we’re already lining up our schedule for the winter-spring semester.

On Saturday, April 9, the Humanity Project will partner with many other great organizations in South Florida to help prevent child abuse. Actually, we’ve been part of this multi-agency effort since late last year. Called Broward AWARE, the campaign aims to raise awareness about many aspects of this horrendous problem.

We want to give a shout out to Children’s Services Council of Broward County. They have been a Humanity Project sponsor for the past three years, including a recent contribution for our innovative anti-bullying program. Children’s Services Council supports a broad range of groups that make life better in many ways for kids.
