CUSTOMIZE AN AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
After school programs may be customized to meet your school’s unique needs and vary in length from a few weeks to the entire school year.
The young people in our programs begin and end each class with formal mindfulness practice — then move, create, and learn to bring mindfulness into activity with creative projects and imaginative play.
Grades 1-5: After school programs for children (ages 5-11) aim to honor the inner-life of the child by entering mindfulness practice through the door of the imagination. Content includes movement, storytelling, cooperative games, active play, nature-based and sustainability projects, and mindful eating.
Grades 6-12: After school programs for youth (ages 12-17) aim to foster academic success and vibrant mental health through strengthening executive function, affecting the development of brain architecture, and providing the foundation for learning and pro-social behavior.
Teen programs explore how mindfulness is helping diverse populations including professional athletes, performing artists, and technology innovators to find their optimal performance zone, excel in their fields of interest, and cultivate a stability of mind that is easily accessed during difficult times.
