Northern District - President's Project

Be Kind; Mental Health Matters.

This President's Project theme is intentionally broad to enable your Clubs to focus on different aspects of the theme in different community service program areas, whether in your Education and Libraries program, your Health and Wellness program, or in your Civic Engagement program.

Be Kind. How can random acts of kindness impact others? How can we encourage others to perform more random acts of kindness? How many acts of random kindness can your Club perform in a month? In a year?

Conversely, let’s raise awareness of how being unkind impacts other, specifically, bullying. Did you know that 1 in 5 students is bullied on a daily basis? Did you know that students who experience bullying are at an increased risk for depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school? And bullying doesn’t just occur in schools among children, it occurs online, it occurs in group gatherings, among both children, teens, young adults, and older adults. And it hurts! 

How do we turn this around? How do we make an impact in our communities? We change our actions, we raise awareness, we educate others, and we reduce the stigma!  During the 2024-2026 GFWC Virginia Northern District Administration, I challenge you all! Take a journey with me, treat others kindly, raise awareness of the impacts of bullying, teach others about bullying prevention, and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
