Take the Stand for the Silent Leadership Challenge


Kirk Smalley of Stand for the Silent lost his 11-year old son to suicide. Over 1. 5 million students across the country have experienced a Stand for the Silent Assembly.

Humanity Rising Ambassadors are leaders of social change, spreading kindness and compassion in their schools and communities.

Humanity Rising Ambassadors are eligible to participate in ongoing Service Challenges and will have access to an exclusive pool of scholarships and other types of awards (including gift cards, concert tickets, etc.). 

What are the steps to becoming an HRA?

The first step in becoming a Humanity Rising Ambassador is to take the Humanity Rising / Stand for the Silent Anti-bullying Leadership Challenge.

Bullying is rampant in our society and young people have the power to change this. 

We want all of our Humanity Rising Ambassadors to help put an end to bullying through creating cultures of kindness and respect in their schools and communities. 

Our partner in the Leadership Challenge is Stand for the Silent.

As a Humanity Rising Ambassador, you will help Stand for the Silent spread their message to more students, and empower students to be the solution to the bullying epidemic.    

What is required?

To participate, you only need to be 13 years or older, a current high school student and have a minimum 2.5 GPA.

  • Commit to 3 acts of kindness this week (a smile, compliment, holding the door open, etc.) to someone that you think is left out, bullied or could use an act of kindness!
  • Raise funds to help empower students to be the solution to the bullying epidemic.  Your funds will help Stand for the Silent and Humanity Rising reach more students.


  • Share what is working at your school to put an end to bullying, or share your solution to the bullying epidemic.
