Changing the Culture of DAHS

In 2023, we introduced Ripple Effect at DAHS, a pioneering program incentivizing kindness and self-improvement with rewards ranging from apparel to gaming consoles. With over $40,000 invested, nominated students stand to win exclusive prizes, aiming to cultivate a more compassionate school community and tackle prevalent issues faced by today's youth.


The Ripple

The Ripple Effect initiative not only rewards acts of kindness but also creates a ripple effect of positivity and support among students, fostering a sense of belonging and empathy. By recognizing and celebrating acts of kindness, it encourages recipients to continue spreading positivity, amplifying the program's impact throughout the school community.


Winning makes a difference

Winning in the Ripple Effect program can empower children by reinforcing positive behaviors and fostering a sense of accomplishment. Beyond material rewards, it encourages a culture of kindness and empathy, promoting mental well-being and stronger connections within the school community.


The Effect

The "ripple effect" of the program extends beyond the immediate recipients, influencing others to engage in acts of kindness and self-improvement, creating a cascade of positive change throughout the school. Each act of kindness sets off a chain reaction, inspiring a culture of compassion and community that reverberates throughout DuBois Area High School.
