Decide to Be Kind

Ellington Youth Services and the Council for Developing Positive Youth Culture (DPYC) created the "Decide To Be Kind" campaign with a mission to provide inspiration, education and resources to build a kinder and more compassionate community.

Our hope is that individuals, families, and businesses will have a growing awareness of what happens when we consistently practice and cultivate kindness in our everyday lives by:

  • Being kind on social media

  • Practicing good sportsmanship

  • Celebrating diversity

  • Being understanding of mental health issues

  • Being kind, friendly, and compassionate in our daily interactions
