Click one of the boxes immediately above to find the best wellness experience for you, find mental health resources relevant to youth and families, or to read the fun and exciting blogs written for and by youth.
Every volunteer experience is designed to be fun, flexible and meaningful for families. We will work as a team with other families. Together, we will make a great impact on the community and also learn about practicing Kyndfulness as a family. We will provide simple, effective tools to make it easy for families to integrate kyndfulness into their routines. These volunteer projects are meant to make the hardest part – finding and signing up for volunteer events – simple and fun.
When youth and families engage in acts of kyndness and wellness opportunities they get much more than a superficial high. Science has proven that these activities can help youth in much deeper, long-lasting ways. Please see our Guided Resources section to learn more about the science behind youth volunteering or to find resources about specific mental health concerns that our Youth Advisory Council felt were most relevant for them and their peers
Once per month our Director or a member of Youth Advisory Council are tasked with creating a blog that is relevant to the mission of Project Helping and to the youth that we serve through Kyndfulness for Kids. Please click above to learn more about the issues that matter most to youth, such as insecurities about volunteering, becoming a Kynd Leader, the Youth Advisory Council, and the many mental wellness areas that are most concerning among youth ages 5-17.
