Compassionate Classrooms

Our Compassionate Classrooms program provides a safe space for students to connect together, learn compassion practices and engage in direct service opportunities for their school community. Using methods of purposeful play, mindfulness and experiential learning, we teach life-long habits of emotional well-being and cultivate a mindful service mindset.

Building the mindful service mindset in the youngest generations.

Through Mindful Littles, our students are developing a set of tools (purposeful breathing, positive self-talk, expression of gratitude, performing kind acts) to proactively mitigate feelings they are experiencing due to the recent significant traumatic event as well as other daily stressors. Additionally, the strategies are equipping the students with the skills and mindset to make a positive impact on our school community.”
