Participants in Samaritans365 programs are educated by speakers from various philanthropic organizations within their community and are given the opportunity to participate in hands-on, age appropriate activities that teach them the importance of being kind to themselves and to others.
Our free programs are led by local Certified Samaritans365 Ambassadors and can be offered as an after-school club, an elective, part of school curriculum or summer camp, and can be held in various locations including schools, places of worship, community centers, or any gathering place where a helping hand is needed.
As a Certified Samaritans365 Ambassador, you will be leading and inspiring others to develop a sense of gratitude for who they are and what they have, as well as empathy, respect, compassion, and unity with people of all races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds.

I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way.
I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day.
I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands.
I pledge to respect people in each and every land.
I pledge to join together as we unite the big and small.
I pledge to do my part to create peace for one and all.
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
