Grant Alert: Helping Teens Inspire Kindness in Schools
The U-ACT Program, sponsored by the Red Robin Foundation, challenges middle and junior high schools to create caring communities and inspire kindness among students. The goal of the Red Robin Foundation U-ACT Champion Program is to help foster and create a sense of neighborliness inside and outside of the school.
U-ACT which stands for Unbridled Acts, or random acts of kindness, is a character-building initiative specifically for elementary and middle schools with grades K-8, which aims to inspire and energize students about the value of being kind to others. Participating schools are asked to submit an idea for a kindness program to the Foundation for a chance to earn a grant ranging from $150-$2,500.
At the end of the 2011-2012 school year, one school will be named the Champion School and will receive an additional $5,000 grant.
Middle and junior high schools are eligible to apply.
The deadline to apply is March 31, 2012.
