Our Youth Leadership programs are an integral part of Mindful Littles. Anchored on our feel-good, do-good model, these programs provide teen leaders with the unique opportunity to develop leadership skills through hands-on community service opportunities to inspire and empower younger-aged peers in habits of compassion.
Wellness Peer Educators
Learning Feel-Good Habits by Doing Good Teaching
We partner with schools and student wellness centers to help teen leaders become Wellness Peer Educators. Through this powerful program, teens become trained in simple mindfulness and compassion habits (breathing, listening, positive mindset) with peers. They then have the opportunity to apply these skills by teaching these habits to littles—younger aged children—on select days of service.
The Win-Win-Win Result
Younger children are engaged by teens they look up to
Teen leaders habituate compassion by teaching
School communities are more strongly connected
