Mindful Service Learning

Our Mindful Service Learning program is an innovative educational model where youth take part in highly experiential service projects with their school or community to directly benefit another local nonprofit or community cause.

Compassion In Action from the Inside Out

Unlike traditional community service programs, we harness the power of our unique Feel Good-Do Good model to build the compassion muscle in our youth participants and teach them the strength of community connectedness. 

Each experience is carefully crafted to help participants feel deep empathy and turn compassionate intention into meaningful positive action for the greater good.  Our inside-out approach to service mindfully engages students to foster behavior shifts.  

Humanize and Empathize

Through interactive visual storytelling,
we make important social topics real
and relatable for all ages, which builds perspective about our common
humanity.

Engage in Action

By creating valuable tangible goods—
like hygiene kits, warm meals, and encouraging cards of support—
participants gain a sense of purpose
and agency.

This morning in our Mindful Littles Service Project, my students got the opportunity to see the hard work it takes for them to receive the goods they get from food banks and donations. Many of our students are dependent on these types of services and up until these service projects, they most likely have never seen what people are doing behind the scenes to make sure they have food on the table each night. Thank you for all the work you have done with our students and for continuing to help us provide social and emotional support to them.
