Fostering a Culture of Mindfulness with Students & Educator Colleagues

The LIGHT Awards is honored to feature the work of the Culture of Mindfulness grant team in this new video.

Many LIGHT Awards projects feature social and emotional learning, and some projects are expressly tied to that theme. For all grants, the LIGHT Awards seeks to fund projects that support the passion and resilience of teachers, regardless of whether their chosen professional development is traditionally academic or not.

This particular project is an inspiring example of how teacher-selected professional development can support positive social and emotional growth among teachers and students alike. Congratulations to the amazing team at June Jordan School for Equity!
