Students from area schools, including Yorkville High School and Yorkville Middle School, are invited to attend a Nov. 11 screening of “Finding Kind,” an anti-bullying documentary.
The event, hosted by Centennial Counseling Center, is in conjunction with the Kind Campaign. The campaign, which uses “Finding Kind” as a resource tool, is founded on the principle that kindness “brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl ‘crime.’” The documentary was created in 2009 by two Pepperdine University students who were the victims of female bullying. The message is simple, begin being kind to stop the hate.
Following the 1:30 p.m. screening, students will have a chance to participate in a panel discussion on bullying.
The event will be held at The Timber Creek Inn and Convention Center, 3300 Drew Ave. in Sandwich. it is free and open to anyone who wishes to participate, however it is suggested that te content is not suitable for children younger than 10-years-old.
