Our Organization

Our Mission: Mindful Schools trains, guides, and connects educators on a journey to deepen their mindfulness practice and cultivate mindful learning environments that allow everyone in the school community to thrive.

In 2007, a small, passionate team assembled their collective experience in education, social justice, and mindfulness and founded Mindful Schools on the belief that mindfulness provides young people with a compass to navigate their lives. The program began in a classroom at Emerson Elementary School in Oakland, CA.

Today, Mindful Schools is one of the key players in the movement to integrate mindfulness into the everyday learning environment of K-12 classrooms. The organization has trained over 50,000 educators, parents, and mental health professionals who work with youth. These graduates, spanning 100+ countries, have reached over 3 million children worldwide.

Join Mindful Schools in imagining the possibilities of a world where every young person has access to the gift of mindfulness.
