What is Be Kind Online?
Be Kind Online 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 all leave behind a mark online – a digital fingerprint, which is formed by our actions and behaviours. Be Kind Online asks today’s youth to ensure the mark they leave online is a positive one.
The Ministry of Education has partnered with SaskTel 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.
