The Mind Body Awareness Project

What is The Mind Body Awareness Project?

At the Mind Body Awareness Project we believe at-risk & incarcerated youth have the potential to take control of their actions and fully transform their lives – they are literally one breath away from making better decisions. As a non-profit organization, we have developed a unique mental training program consisting of mindfulness meditation and emotional intelligence exercises designed to strengthen youth’s minds, relieve their toxic stress, and build their ability to make better decisions.

While the medical benefits of mindfulness meditation are well documented, our program is one of the first to bring this cost-effective rehabilitation service into institutions serving at-risk youth.

Customized for an urban youth population and delivered by our extremely dynamic instructors in a language and framework relevant to their lives, our programs are successfully helping teens to develop self-regulation, empathy, and mindful attention, gain impulse control, and relieve the extremely high levels of anxiety and stress they struggle with.These are the real tools youth today need – tools that bring an inner revolution of the heart and mind.Our long-term goal is to become a new national model for adapting mindfulness and emotional literacy programming to the needs of at-risk, gang-involved and incarcerated youth. Through a combination of ground-breaking direct service, extensive research and evaluation efforts, advocacy and coalition-building, and capacity-building and training of youth service providers, we are working to create a world where all young people can find authentic freedom. Welcome to the Mind Body Awareness Project.
