Target: The Humanity Project
Goal: Commend The Humanity Project for creating website that helps isolated, confused, and bullied middle school children
The Humanity Project has promoted the idea that self awareness through the realization of individual and shared value can lead to fewer struggles individually and socially. The Humanity Project is cultivating a “win for all” belief system in children and young adults. The idea of a shared value mentality is the foundation for the organization’s philosophies. Its newest venture is a website that focuses on helping isolated, confused, and bullied middle school children.
Driven by a grassroots endeavor in 2005 by Robert Spencer Knotts, The Humanity Project has traveled marathon distances with its innovative thoughtfulness and programs for people of all ages. Some of the biggest accomplishments of the project have come from the group’s anti-bullying campaign. In 2008 the group took a brilliant look at bullying by educating elementary bystanders through the “Anti-Bullying Through The Arts Program.” From its inception, the program has forwarded the principles of belief in self, combined with an outstretched hand to humanity. This approach led to the creation of their anti-bullying program being used in Broward county, Florida, the sixth-largest school district in the nation. That same program is now being used in states including Vermont, Montana, and Pennsylvania. In 2008 The Humanity Project also took its message to the streets, launching the “Thousand Youth March for Humanity,” where over 2,100 adults and children walked to show their support of the cause.
In 2010 the philosophy grew into a writing program for elementary age children. This next step for ending bullying provided benefits not only to the children receiving the message directly, but also for the at-risk middle-schoolers who wrote the stories and rap poems used to deliver hope.
In 2012, The Humanity Project sparked THP4kids, another breakthrough in reaching children who are about to enter the highway of decision making at breakneck speeds. By using peers from Southern Plantation High School, a Florida magnet school, guidance, insight, encouragement, and friendship are offered online. A visit to their website provides mental road stops to kids who are being bullied, feeling alone and awkward, and to those who are questioning their sexuality. The at-risk youth grappling with these issues today are tomorrow’s society; sign the petition below to show your support of the efforts made by The Humanity Project to better that society.
