KIND Youth
Young people are the key to a kinder future. Learn how you can support the youth in your community!


Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta created Born This Way Foundation (BTWF) with the mission of supporting the wellness of young people and empowering them to create a kinder and braver world. When young people have the relationships and resources necessary to thrive, they can be the cornerstone of a healthier and happier society.

The new BTWF initiative, Channel Kindness, does just that! Channel Kindness is a corps of youth reporters, trained to use their ears, eyes and hearts to find, recognize and share the everyday and heroic acts of kindness that fill our daily lives and shape our communities. Channel Kindness is a force for good, powered by the passion and purpose of young people who tell the stories of an engaged, empowered, collaborative and compassionate generation.
