MBA Project Board member Kyra Bobinet wrote a blog post for Huffington Post Impact titled “Shouldn’t Incarcerated Youth Benefit From Mindfulness Too?”
“I grew up in juvenile hall,” says Andre. He was homeless and never in school long enough to get a diploma. Andre’s MBA Project certificate of completion was his first graduation, “a sign of better things to come.”
MBA Project Founder Noah Levine led “Detachment Day,” a day-long meditation retreat for Google employees. Noah spoke about compassion for self and other, among other skills and practices that MBA Project instructors often bring to youth in juvenile hall.
The MBA Project is honored to be part of The Huffington Post’s 10th year anniversary celebration, and are excited to celebrate by offering thank you gifts to our amazing supporters.
