Mindfulness Leader is a first-of-its-kind after school program in the City of Chicago
Dedicated to creating positive changes in the lives of our youth and teaching the art of mindfulness, which is training the brain to have focused attention and increased emotional regulation.
Our after-school program is an 8-10 week project based course that is offered to students (K-12) where they learn to be the best version of themselves.
The Mindfulness Leader curriculum is aligned with the Illinois State Board of Education’s Social/Emotional Learning standards that focus on development of:
The impact that this making is indescribable but is best said through the words of some of our graduates:
"I learned that the change was always in me, I just needed a push. Kamaya, Age 15

There are currently 2,500 children on our waiting list and seeds the expansion of our program.
