Wow! We really hope you’ll check out this new website, totally created by teens, for teens … for the Humanity Project. Talented students in Ms. Madeline Rosario’s web design classes took our I Care book and ran with it — and came up with this site for our program. They even recorded a music version of the I Care book’s rap poem, then created an animated video to go with it. You’ll find this on the home page, which is shown in a screenshot photo posted with this blog.

See that new logo in this story? Cool, isn’t it? This boldly redesigned I Care logo is only the beginning of all the great new elements coming to our Humanity Project I Care teen driver safety program. We’re about to launch teen-created videos and memes as well as Tumblr and Twitter pages to join our Facebook page … even a whole website devoted to I Care.

We will keep this blog very short, mostly because we’d rather have you watch a brief video than spend more time reading. This is the latest 40-sec video from our ongoing thp4kids effort. (You’ll remember that the Humanity Project is leading a talented group of students from South Plantation High School in Plantation, Florida. With their great teacher, Madeline Rosario, we’re creating a unique website for socially isolated middle school students, including many in the LGBT community: thp4kids.com. All this is being done through generous funding from the State Farm Youth Advisory Board.) Our quick vid shows some key thp4kids staffers at work … on their Friday off school!

This week, we’ll offer a brief post — and a link we hope you’ll want to check out. On Wednesday, February 13, the Humanity Project welcomed six of our great high school student staffers into the professional recording studio for a session. These are among the students who are part of our fabulous thp4kids team, creating a very special website for very special fellow students. When it launches online this spring, thp4kids (The Humanity Project 4 Kids) will offer inspiring videos, games, music, quizzes, poetry, blogs and more. From students, for students. This work was made possible by a generous grant from our great friends at State Farm through their Youth Advisory Board. As part of our work, we needed to do several voiceovers for videos as well as to record a podcast about our project … and record an original song by two of the students. …

It was a very good start to 2013. Our great friends at State Farm let us know they were awarding the Humanity Project a new grant — this time to expand and market our innovative I Care teen driver safety program. This means that we will be able to create videos and original music as well as to develop our I Care Facebook page. The vital funding also will allow us to involve students more effectively in helping to spread the book among their peers.

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.

The Humanity Project, or THP as we’re sometimes called, is proud to work more closely than ever with the LGBT community. We believe that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people too often remain victims of serious discrimination, abuse and bullying. So as the Humanity Project builds our new website for socially isolated middle schoolers, including many LGBT kids, we are making new friends among organizations dedicated to improving life for LGBT folks.
