Mindfully Inclusive Youth Programs
A Scientific and Mindful approach to Diversity Awareness
- 1 hr1 hour
For school administrators dealing with burnout, behavior problems, and performance pressure, who desire to address diversity equity and inclusion (DEI) discrepencies but don't know where to begin. Integrating evidence-based Mindfulness practice has been researched to show: *Improved grades, test scores, and athletic performance *Reduced aggression *Accessible and immediate therapeutic benefits to mental health And because Self Awareness is the 1st step to making real DEI impact, it's the perfect lense for cultural humility and competence work. K-6 - Mindfully Diverse Schools story hour includes discussion, journal prompts, and fun movement proven to activate the learning centers of the brain. Our sessions can be integrated with current class subjects and common core standards (we would actually love to coordinate with your lessons). 7-12 - Adolescent programming focuses on identity, stress, current events, and active bystanding, empowering them to be a part of the solution. Students will also have the transformational opportunity to integrate what they've learned by participating in a social impact project. Professional Development - As with any initiative, creating faculty buy-in is an important component to maximize benefit. Participants will gain: *An overview of the researched evidence behind Brave Space *Understanding of conditioned bias and how to overcome it. *An arsenal of practical and accessible "learning-brain" activating tools to use in the classroom Everything we do is trauma-informed, data driven, and results-based.
