SEL Awardee

Regional School District No. 7

Winsted, CT
“Kindness in Motion originated in RSD No. 7 in 2015. Students apply for a $100 grant by describing an idea they would like to put into motion. Most use the grant as seed money. They recognize a need, reflect, create a plan and put it into action. Examples include: sending handmade dolls to an orphanage in China, rebuilding a deck for an elderly neighbor, stuffing backpacks for children taken into DCF custody, teaching painting to the elderly, etc. Students contribute to the greater good in deeply meaningful ways. It's recognized by the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Facebook and InspirED.”
