Children for Others

Children for Others

In a society that’s becoming increasingly self-centered and isolated, Harmony parents sometimes feel like they are fighting against the tide when they try to raise their children to be generous, selfless, and kind to those in need. That’s why we started “Children for Others,” a coordinated effort between Harmony’s Outreach and Religious Exploration programs.

How do our kids work towards becoming Children for Others?

  • Kids as young as 7 research, plan, and execute their own community service projects
  • They take initiative to find external groups we can partner with, such as Nothing But Nets and the ASPCA
  • They work as a team to cover all aspects of outreach and fundraising events, with just a little parental help along the way

Kids who have worked on our outreach events have honed their writing, public speaking, math, and entrepreneurial skills. Even more importantly, they are developing an understanding that even the youngest members of society can and should dedicate their time toward making a difference.

Junior high focus on poverty

In 2017, the Sequoia (6th to 8th grade) students are hard at work on a project that they hope will make a significant difference to local people living in poverty. They identified hunger as their target problem, and  they are creating two projects. One  project is grounded in charity, and the other has a goal of social justice.
