Our programs

Mindful Life Project is a Bay Area nonprofit that supports the mental and emotional wellbeing of underserved students, teachers, school leaders, and families through our highly regarded mindfulness based social emotional learning programming.We create a strong foundation of wellbeing at the individual level which leads to healthy school cultures where all students feel safe, welcomed, valued, and can thrive socially and academically.

MLP has quickly become the largest direct service mindfulness organization in the country and has been highlighted as a premier organization both nationally and internationally. We have expanded our work into also providing highly regarded and multi layered training programs.

Mindful Community

Mindful Community is currently being implemented at all of our direct service partner schools. In Mindful Community, students and teachers learn mindfulness-based social-emotional skills in engaging and culturally relevant ways designed to connect with everyday experiences. Lessons are 25-minutes long and delivered once per week to every classroom in a partner school. Teachers are also trained to provide mindfulness in their classroom on a daily basis to compliment our direct services for maximum impact. Through the work we do with students, parents, teachers, leaders and whole school communities, Mindful Life Project is creating systemic change within the schools that is positively influencing all levels of the learning environment.

Rise-Up

To complement Mindful Community’s whole school approach, we support the most “in need” students in our deeper intervention and prevention pullout program, Rise-Up. In Rise-Up, we support eight students per grade level to deepen their mindfulness practice and use expressive arts, yoga and performing arts to release stress and trauma so that they can thrive in the whole school community. We now offer this training for anyone who supports the most in need students in small groups.
