Our direct services are categorized into 3 departments: 1) Probation services, 2) School-based services, and 3) Community-based services.
Please contact us if you are interested in MBA delivering our services to your school or organization.
MBA was originally created to provide mindfulness-based services to incarcerated youth, and we are still dedicated to that mission. We provide mindfulness-based groups and one-on-one sessions through our 10-module mindfulness-based curriculum developed specifically for high-risk youth.
We currently provide probation services in both Alameda and San Mateo Counties in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
We offer MBA Project groups to students at Hayward Community School in Alameda County in collaboration with Moving Forward Education. Twice a week at Hayward Community School, instructors lead a girls’ group focusing on the MBA Project curriculum. Students are introduced to the concept of mindfulness, and what it means to develop a stance of awareness and acceptance, many for the first time.
Similar to our expansion of providing school-based services, MBA is continually attempting to grow its presence in the communities where our high-risk youth reside. We believe by developing programs in such communities we will be able to provide a continuity of service and attempt to break the vicious cycle of recidivism.
Our community-based services include partnerships with trusted and respected community-based organizations.
