If you read my interview with Sydney Park and Christina Li for Halo Effect “Hello World" episode, then you know I'm a fan of the series since it profiles young activists making positive changes in their communities.

So I'm beyond excited that Nickelodeon’s is launching the Nickelodeon HALO Movement, a new year-round pro-social initiative celebrating kids who are helping and leading others (HALO).

Beginning this month, Nickelodeon is teaming up with longstanding volunteer partners Key Club and to mobilize kids to participate in service projects.

  • Key Club, a student-led volunteer organization sponsored by Kiwanis International, will provide its members with opportunities to participate in service projects that can be submitted for a chance to receive seed grants to further support their cause.
  •, the largest tech platform for young people and social change, will select monthly scholarship winners who participate in and complete their campaigns.
  • On, the digital hub for the Nickelodeon HALO Movement, users can submit videos, photos or notes showing how they are helping and leading others, for the opportunity to be featured on the site. also provides tips and information on ways to get involved in the community and allows users to share their HALO moments using #WeHALO.

The Nickelodeon HALO Movement builds on the HALO Awards, an annual concert event honoring young community leaders, and The HALO Effect, the 2016 docu-series that gave viewers an in-depth look into the inspirational stories of teens who are eager to share the issues important to them.
