Mindfulness in Schools, for kids
At Mindful Boston, we teach adult learners.
The following are organizations that work with younger ages.
Calmer Choice https://calmerchoice.org/
Calmer Choice is dedicated to bringing secular mindfulness-based social emotional education into Cape Cod public schools. We work in close partnership with administrators and educators to provide full-school programs that build a culture of mindfulness and kindness across entire schools. In recent years, Cape Cod has been challenged by a sharp and dramatic increase of losing young people to suicides, opioid overdose and accidental deaths associated with high-risk behaviors.
Calmer Choice is a universal prevention program committed to teaching young people how to effectively and safely manage stress and resolve conflict so that they live happy, healthy and successful lives. Our goal is to provide skills that will diminish the risk of violence, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors.
