Camp Kindness Counts

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 4 people are interested

Camp Kindness Counts is looking for college kids or adults that can mentor youth kindness ambassadors, who are typically aged between 11-15. Our youth ambassadors lead their own kind world explorer clubs with 5-10 elementary aged kids. In these clubs, they teach mindfulness activities and inspire character development over a series of 6 weekly lessons. They will be using a curriculum provided by Camp Kindness Counts.

As a mentor, you will be required to get familiar with the training manual/curriculum so that you can help the Kindness Ambassador with it, conduct a practice session before their club starts, observe a few of their classes and give feedback and support as needed. You will also help them be organized by reminding them to send weekly communication emails and surveys towards the end.

You can choose to mentor one or a few youth ambassadors at a time. You should expect to spend 1-2 hours per ambassador for the first couple of weeks, and not more than 30 mins each week for the rest of their session.

Mission Statement

The vision of our program is to empower, inspire and teach youth how they can create a positive impact around them with their acts of kindness. To create a future generation of kind, mindful, intelligent leaders is important. It is also an optimal window of opportunity to build on children’s natural skills of empathy during their impressionable years. Through our research we have found when children are given the opportunity to connect with kindness "face to face", experiencing the results of their actions first hand is when learning becomes impactful, empowering and inspiring.

Description

We begin with our basic skill of empathy, which is introduced at home and fostered where kids spend most of their day, in school. By learning from each other and working together, kids slowly transition and expand learning and actively connecting with kindness outside of their comfort zone. Kids will gain a whole picture perspective of how one simple act of kindness can make a positive impact around them and become aware of how they can be the positive change around them!
