In the Community

Sweethearts and Heroes

Sweethearts and Heroes is a message that believes in educating society about the impact that bullying has on all of our schools, our neighborhoods, and individuals. Through knowledge and communication, we are committed to bringing our message to individual communities — not only to help the victims, but especially to empower bystanders to make a difference. We all have the potential to be someone’s hero. The message is so universal that it can help create climates of empathy, kindness and leadership in all settings including schools, colleges, and corporations.

Our Involvement

Echelon Planning Group is a proud sponsor of Sweet Hearts and Heroes, a program that we brought to our local schools in Bow and Concord in 2018/2019.  We believe that their message is even more important today than ever before and are committed to adding school districts to our sponsorship in 2020/2021.  With the addition of SEL programs for teachers, parents and students in today’s world of learn from home this message can help our community to stay strong and make sure our community have the tools to help their children through these difficult times.

Their all-day live events at these local schools had a specific and profound impact not only to the students, teachers, administrators and the community but also on our Managing Partner David Hodgkins who experienced a devastating school shooting in 1986 as a student of Concord High School.  Here is a Vlog of David sharing his story at one of the events we sponsored which is about 6 minutes long.
