Our mission is to create innovative arts-based programs that help youth solve pressing social problems through collaborative efforts that emphasize the value of each individual.
Behind The Humanity Project, a 501c(3), we are adults helping kids to help kids. We bring together young people to help their peers (and sometimes parents) solve tough problems such as bullying, teen driver safety and teenage social isolation – issues where we can offer our experience and expertise. Together we create and implement all-original programs that reduce these problems while strengthening respect for the individual and promoting self-value. We call our unique approach “shared value.” Our vision is to make our original empirically based philosophy of shared value recognized worldwide, with our programs, writings and other materials available to every youth who can benefit from them. Learn more about our fantastic Board of Directors here.
How We Do This
Through practical, hands-on applications of our science-based philosophy of “shared value,” an original concept created by the Humanity Project’s founder, Bob Knotts. These applications include our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program for elementary school children in addition to a myriad of other programs that can be viewed here.
Our Core Values
All Humanity Project programs are based on a set of three core values:
- Respect for all
- The importance of diversity
- The need for self-worth
