More than 100 4th graders from Wilson Elementary School gathered at Anoka Covenant Church on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, to learn all about spreading kindness. It’s part of a partnership with Youth Frontiers for a Kindness Retreat.

Founded in 1987 and based in the Twin Cities, Youth Frontiers is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to building the character of young people.

Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union is a proud sponsor.

At the Kindness Retreat, kids met in small groups, played games, learned the importance of kindness, and built a sense of community. Students had the opportunity to safely and publicly express how they will show more kindness to their teachers and classmates every day.

"The students raved about the Kindness Retreat and how much fun the day was. The retreat was action-packed and filled with energy,” said Britt Prokop, School Social Worker at Wilson Elementary School. ”I couldn't believe the level of engagement from start to finish. Students who attended the retreat are brainstorming ideas of how to inspire kindness throughout the rest of the school and I have no doubt they will come up with something brilliant."
