June Jordan School for Equity, San Francisco

The team of five high school teachers, representing a variety of subject areas and grade levels, will participate in a series of mindfulness courses and retreats over the course of two years. They will introduce a mindfulness curriculum and practice throughout the school to help foster a culture of emotional and interpersonal health and stress management – skills that can be used both in and out of the classroom. Students will also be trained as peer mentors, and will gain leadership experience through helping other students with their mindfulness practice.
