The goal for our flagship program Inner Strength Teen Program is to reach a significant percent of Philadelphia high school students, training these youth to work with the powerful tools of mindful contemplation techniques and the perspective of cultural development. When these tools become shared currency between classmates, siblings, neighbors, and friends, teens self-reinforce positive habits of behavior. Peer groups reinforce depth, joy, compassion, responsibility, purpose, and vision.
“The discussion groups showed me that I felt similar stresses as my peers. i am able to relate to them more freely now. thank you.” Natalia, 16 year-old
