In today’s rapidly changing world, children face unique social and emotional challenges. Kids are experiencing greater pressures earlier in life, and feel more stress and anxiety than ever before.
What if their school day began with a few moments of quiet and stillness? Numerous studies have shown the many benefits of teaching mindfulness to children. Through mindfulness education, kids can develop a lifelong capacity for greater self-awareness, concentration, patience, and resilience.
Meanwhile, educators face pressures of their own. Many teachers understand the benefits of mindfulness, but they face time and budget constraints, making it challenging to bring mindfulness education to the classroom.
With The Calm Schools Initiative, every teacher in the world will receive free access to Calm, the mindfulness app that hundreds of thousands of people all over the world use every day. The goal is to empower teachers with mindfulness tools and resources they can use to help kids learn this new skill.
Teachers will have unlimited access to our growing library of guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, including Calm Kids, a program tailored for age groups from pre-K through high school.
Their goal is to onboard 100,000 classrooms this year, improving the lives of over 1 million children.
