About the Challenge
The unprecedented events of 2020 have underscored the need for us to build kinder, more compassionate communities, and that starts with early education. The Compassion Project is a national initiative to teach elementary school students the meaning of compassion and develop a foundation for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom and in life.
Join us this November for the National Compassion Challenge, a fun and easy way for teachers to build classroom community by helping students foster empathy and compassion for their classmates, even in a virtual environment.
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.”
