A brand-new initiative at DuBois Area High School rewards students for their self-improvement and acts of compassion.
When Matt Reed, a former DuBois High School alumnus, noticed a student without shoes and struggling to purchase any, he made the decision to start helping children. Reed was able to provide DuBois access to a "book vending machine" thanks to the First Class Children's Foundation.
By providing them with books that they had asked for or indicated they would be interested in, the vending machine encouraged pupils to read. Students could "buy" books from the vending machine using a token system.
Now that Reed is targeting older pupils with larger awards, he is hoping that the good deed will have a greater ripple effect.
In order to be eligible to win prizes like Beavers 1881 clothing, pop culture statues, and electronics, students are encouraged to be kind to one another and to work on improving their own character as part of the Ripple Effect. A PS5 or Xbox Series X will be awarded to the two pupils that spread the most compassion over the entire school year.
Teens who are nominated by pupils or teachers will receive tokens that can be exchanged for rewards. Additionally, a committee dedicated to compassion will be established to select deserving students for rewards and assist them in improving themselves.
This programme is the biggest the First Class Children's Foundation has ever run, with a $40,000 budget.
"Too many kids experience loneliness in their own neighbourhood. In a Facebook post introducing the Ripple Effect, Reed stated that "too many kids are dealing with insurmountable personal issues. It is our responsibility to ensure that we foster a compassionate and friendly community in order to improve culture. Our kids are where it all begins. The culture will alter thanks to this programme.
