The simple answer of who we are is this:
"Creating a national FindTheKind movement where student and community leaders work side-by-side to Resurrect Civility, Leadership and Kindness one person at a time."
The National Civility Association was formed after 600 people attended the very first Civility Summit. They raved about what they experienced and had never seen anything like it before. It was this very same experience that prompted a group of the high level people who attended to pull the speaker aside to discuss further options on how to bring this to the masses across the country of ours.
The Civility Summit was so powerful and spoke to the real issues that the Schools, Businesses, Communities & Homes collectively were facing. BUT this is where a Civility Summit sets itself apart from other attempts to do something about these issues — Civility Summits start with the questions of "What If" and "What's Possible" in flipping these problems upside down and focusing on ongoing action plans that really make a difference in Schools, Businesses, Communities & Homes.
After some planning it was determined that forming the National Civility Association as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) was the best way to bring Civility Summits to communities throughout the United States.
We are passionate and committed to delivering Civility Summits to as many communities as possible with the core message that Finding The Kind in yourself and in others is the first step in working together. We all have different opinions. We can still choose to treat each other with kindness, caring and respect.Creating a national FindTheKind movement where student and community leaders work side-by-side to Resurrect Civility, Leadership and Kindness one person at a time.
