 Community Civility Counts

Community Civility Counts, a nationally recognized campaign that started in Gary in 2015, will partner with The Civility Center (, a longtime non-profit organization, as both organizations continue to expand and bring awareness to #CivilityCounts in communities and classrooms.

Community Civility Counts, which started as a partnership with the Gary Chamber of Commerce and The Times Media Co., has been expanding throughout Northwest Indiana and has been reaching out further with a model of how to bring #CivilityCounts to communities.

This curriculum-based training program is founded on the book, Civility, Compassion, and Courage in Schools Today: Strategies for Implementing in K-12 Classrooms written by Drs. Kohler-Evans and Barnes. The program will provide interactive activities, methods, and strategies to move beyond simple awareness to taking action to become a change enterprise. This program is designed to teach participants how to facilitate and cultivate civility, compassion, and courage in the classroom, community, and greater society.

Kindness has the ability to increase happiness, self-esteem and optimism, improve mental and physical wellbeing, lower stress and anxiety levels, create better social, emotional and academic outcomes, and reduce bullying in schools as well as the community.

Sounds good, doesn’t it!

That’s because kindness is a natural remedy
for a multitude of ailments!

Given this impressive list of proven benefits, we found it astonishing that more people weren’t using it! And how is it possible that more schools hadn’t adopted it as a natural means to reduce anti-social and exclusive behaviour?

We decided it was time people knew more about the power of kindness so we built a heart-centred primary school curriculum based on kindness and the premise that what you get out of life is directly related to what you give.

With a focus on changing cultures in schools, it has gained International attention as a positive alternative to traditional anti-bullying programs. Promoting a healthy outlook at an early age by building an armour of goodness that nurtures happy, positive, well-rounded individual who care for others is the key to a successful and rewarding life.

We aim to inspire generational change by reaching students from disadvantaged homes so they can experience the happiness that can be achieved when being a kind and caring person. Our lessons and activities are designed to nurture kindness and giving in the classroom, home and community to foster a warm and loving environment where our children can reach their full potential.
