Tacky Box® offers a proactive solution to end bullying by tackling the issue at its root, putting a stop to bullying before it ever starts. At its core, Tacky Box is about citizenship, which must be inculcated from the first step into a Kindergarten classroom and practiced daily throughout the elementary school experience. Leveraging visual, auditory and tactile senses through live theater, literature, writing, music and a tangible tool, the Tacky Box program activates the whole child to make his or her personal choice to be kind, and provides an opportunity to self-monitor on a daily basis during Tacky Box Time. By implementing the program year over year throughout elementary school, the concept that the kinder way is the better way will stick.
Tacky Box has the ability to change a generation and encourage a more respectful society. Over ten thousand children have experienced Tacky Box with remarkable results. This effective Social Emotional Learning program disrupts the thought processes that result in negative behavior and instills in children a sense of pride and self-worth. Through their personal choice to treat others differently than what is modeled for them in society, children are developing a stronger sense of self, purpose and belonging by being part of a kinder tribe. As a result, Tacky Box is transforming school climates.
