As parents, educators, and citizens, we want our children to grow up in a kinder, more compassionate world, and that starts with practicing compassion at an early age.
About the Challenge
Our communities need compassion now more than ever, and a simple act of kindness can make all the difference to someone who needs it. The Compassion Project and EVERFI are calling on teachers, parents, and students to demonstrate compassion in your community — and share your story with us!
This years Compassion Project Challenge will take place in November. Stay tuned for more information!
Compassion is when you...
about their feelings.
something to show you care.

What Teachers Are Saying
“In times like these, I feel the need to spread kindness, patience, and compassion. Our students are in a unique position to do the same in their homes and in their neighborhoods. EVERFI’s The Compassion Project was a great program my students were using before this pandemic happened, and I can see the benefits continuing outside the four walls of our classroom.”
