Be Kind Online
The Be Kind Online program is an initiative to bring awareness and education to cyberbullying and cyber safety. It is also a reminder that each and everyone one of us has an obligation to monitor our online behaviour and share in the opportunity to spread positivity.
We’re taking a stand and helping our communities by:
- Providing education around cyber safety
- Raising awareness of the effects of bullying
- Supporting youth-led initiatives
Empowering Our Youth
The Ministry of Education has partnered with Be Kind Online to provide grants of up to $1,000 for youth-led initiatives to address bullying and cyberbullying within the province of Saskatchewan. The goal is to empower youth to take action in their communities to spread kindness, positivity, and connectedness.
The grant provides youth the opportunity to collaborate with others to find solutions to stop bullying and inspire others to do the same. Together we can make a difference.
Since we started in 2013, over 70 grants have been awarded totally over $62,000.
