The Decide to Be Kind committee was formed in the summer of 2015 by Ellington Youth Services and the Council for Developing Positive Youth Culture (DPYC) with a mission to provide inspiration, education and resources to build a kinder and more compassionate community.
Help us brainstorm how to keep the Decide To Be Kind Movement going by offering events, programs and activities. Visit our website to find out how you can join the Decide to Be Kind Movement.
