A group of people planting trees

Since our beginning in 2001, kindness, love, and respect for diversity have guided Student Open Circles. In our world today, this is more urgent than ever; to let love feed us instead of the hate, division, and violence that too often fill our "feeds." Listen in as Julia shares what "just a little bit of love" has done in her life, Hashim describes reaching out to underserved youth and seniors, and Amanda explains how life-changing it is to be deeply respected and listened to.

As Hashim says, we are finding "ways to work towards a more sustainable and equitable future." Thank you for your support as we create communities of kindness and respect, where young people discover their own belovedness and their unique gifts for the world.
