Start With Hello

Social isolation is the overwhelming feeling of being left out, lonely or treated like you are invisible. Young people who feel this way may pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development or choose to hurt themselves or others.

Start With Hello Week brings attention to the growing epidemic of social isolation in our schools and communities, and empowers young people to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their school or youth organization.

Start With Hello Week: February 5–9

During the week of February 5–9, 2018, hundreds of schools and youth organizations across the United States will participate in Start With Hello Week and teach students, grades 2–12, the skills they need to reach out to and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation and create a culture of inclusion and connectedness. Start With Hello Week raises awareness and educates students and the community through Start With Hello trainings, advertising, activities, public proclamations, media events, student contests and school awards. Start With Hello Week is FREE and easy to implement.

Even if your school or youth organization participated in Start With Hello in the past, Start With Hello Week is the perfect opportunity to engage students around sustaining a culture of inclusiveness and connectedness year after year. It’s also a great time to train new students who may not have been in your school or youth organization last year.
