Supporting student Upstanders to
save the lives of bullied peers!


What is the
Be a Friend Project?

An organization of student Upstanders (from kindergarten through college) working to save the lives of their bullied peers and build kinder communities using empathy, education and The Arts. Developed FOR KIDS and BY KIDS in 2015, our national Teen Kindness Board helps guide new initiatives and programming. The signature Friend Mail Program delivers surprise peer support with empathetic words and art to survivors of severe bullying to help them stay strong and know they are not alone.  School and community-based Kindness Clubs celebrate and cultivate acts of bullying prevention and kindness activism.
