Mindful Youth Institute

Welcome to the Mindful Youth Institute

We’re happy you’re here! Please view our classes, teaching strategies, books, and videos under the Resources Menu. You can also donate to our GoFundMe campaign!

Our mission is to create knowledge, interventions, and technology that will help children with learning and behavioral difficulties increase mindfulness, creativity, compassion, generosity, and other positive qualities. We are currently raising funds to develop an anti-bullying intervention that’s looking at the effect of compassion meditation on decreasing bullying and increasing prosocial behavior in youth.
