MAKING COMPASSION A HABIT
We strengthen connectedness through compassion experiences for all ages.
Amidst a staggering national youth mental health crisis, with ever-increasing rates of social isolation, loneliness, polarization, and suicide, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that connectedness to school and home is the #1 most protective factor for youth well-being and mental health.
At Mindful Littles, we employ evidence-based compassion practices to connect youth to each other and to those around them—their peers, schools, families and community. We build self-acceptance, foster belonging and uplift those in need, actively bridging communities through our powerful work.
OUR INNOVATIVE APPROACH
Turning Compassion into Action through Mindful Service Learning
By combining the feel-good benefits of movement and mindfulness with the do-good action of volunteerism and service, our Mindful Service Learning programs foster connectedness and well-being among our participants and their communities.
The Cycle of Compassionate Action
Overcoming Adversities: Our Impact in a Community Affected by Wildfire
It started as a simple gift to help students of Paradise, California cope with wildfire recovery, then grew into a multi-year, ongoing engagement bringing Mindful Littles compassion education programs to the entire county.
“It takes a village to raise a child.”
Our vision is to bring compassion education to as many children as possible, and we can’t do it alone. That’s why we bring our compassion programs not only to schools and youth groups, but to workplaces as well.
For every workplace program purchased, we expand our capacity to bring mindful service learning programs to communities in need.
Our unique, multi-faceted business model supports our nonprofit sustainable long-term growth.
