Honoring Teens Who Exemplify Extraordinary Kindness
The Kindness Project, an initiative of the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit and Partners In Torah, has established a new program, the Kindness Stars, to honor exceptional teens in our community. Kindness Stars are teens who do, or have done, an extraordinary act of kindness; who have volunteered above and beyond any school or religious program requirements; or have created or participated in an innovative kindness program.
Who can be a Kindness Star?
Anyone in grades 9-12 who resides in Metro Detroit.
What actions might describe a Kindness Star?
Perhaps you know a teen who, without being asked or paid, shovels snow in front of his/her neighbors’ homes, or a young individual who volunteers to babysit for a family where money is extremely limited. How about a group of students who organized a toy drive to benefit children who are homeless or started a recycling program at school? These ideas reflect the kind of initiative, commitment and activities that define a Kindness Star.
How do I nominate a Kindness Star?
Simply complete the linked form.
How are Kindness Stars chosen?
A panel of judges from the community will review the nominees and carefully select those who best exemplify the criteria noted above. The Stars will be honored at a ceremony Monday, June 17, 2013 at the JCC in West Bloomfield. All nominees, their family and friends, will be invited to attend the recognition ceremony. All nominees will be recognized.
