Customized for an urban youth population and delivered by our extremely dynamic instructors in a language and framework relevant to their lives, our programs are successfully helping teens to develop self-regulation, empathy, and mindful attention, gain impulse control, and relieve the extremely high levels of anxiety and stress they struggle with. These are the real tools youth today need – tools that bring an inner revolution of the heart and mind. Our goal is to become a staple for adapting mindfulness and emotional literacy programming to the needs of at-risk, gang-involved and incarcerated youth. Through a combination of ground-breaking direct service, extensive research and evaluation efforts, advocacy and coalition-building, and capacity-building and training of youth service providers, we are working to create a world where all young people can find authentic freedom.
