During the week of February 6 -10, schools and youth organizations from across the country are encouraged to participate in Start With Hello Week. Start With Hello Week raises awareness and educates students and the community through Start With Hello trainings, advertising, activities, public proclamations, media events, contests and awards. 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 is a no-cost and easy to implement program that is available to all schools and youth organizations serving youth grades 2 - 12. In addition to young people, Start With Hello will benefit educators, administrators, community-based organization leaders and parents.
