The Program

BNICE is an elementary and middle school moral awareness program that focuses on helping kids grow positive relationships with others by developing a stronger sense of empathy and improving their self-esteem. BNICE integrates both of these factors through an interactive, discussion-based program that is adaptable, engaging and sustainable.

In short, it helps our kids become even better human beings.

Opinions Matter

“Having Chris French present his BNICE program to my classes was very beneficial. I could hear the students reminding each other to BNICE to one another after he left. This program helped to support our school wide PBIS model and the classroom management strategies I used within my own classroom. After his visit my class embarked on a random acts of kindness challenge that each student worked on for 30 days to help continue the idea of being nice to those around you.”
