Volition Franklin Youth participate in kindness week by offering candy canes to other students. We also posted locker signs that said “throw kindness like confetti”. The December meeting for the high school and the middle school was spent adding messages about kindness to the candy cane. Volition Franklin Youth wanted to spread the importance of kindness because kids who are bullied are more likely to resort to drugs and other substances. Data has shown that about 25% of Franklin students have felt bullied in the past. By being kind, we can prevent students from potentially misusing substances. Volition Youth handed out the candy canes during school to their peers and the Language Arts teachers were given bags of candy canes to hand out to their students they noticed being kind.
