Sparty's Kind Kids

We can all use a little more kindness. As it turns out, kids are some of the kindest folks around. Sparty’s Kind Kids connects the kindness and creativity of today’s kids with Spartan service across the community to use our imagination and make our community a better place.

It goes like this: kids dream it, Spartans do it. Together, we help serve our communities, connect with one another and make people smile.

Here’s how it works:

It's simple. The smallest acts of kindness can have a huge impact. Sparty’s Kind Kids encourages young minds to help Spartans across the globe make the world a better place.

  • Sparty in a thinking pose with a thought bubble and the words Kind Kids

Classroom Resources

A specialized worksheet, submission form and activity guide exist for Spartan teachers to submit their classroom’s ideas for making the world a kinder place. 

If any of the worksheets inspire a service project, we will use the information below to communicate directly with you. The contact information will also be used to send a thank you card to each child who participates from Sparty (shhh...it’s a secret).
