The goal for our flagship program Inner Strength Teen Program (formerly Mindfulness & Cultural Development Teen Program) is to reach a significant percent of Philadelphia high school students, training these adolescents with the powerful tools of mindful contemplation techniques and the perspective of cultural development. When these tools become shared currency between classmates, siblings, neighbors, friends, teens will self-reinforce positive habits. Peer groups will reinforce depth, joy, compassion, responsibility, purpose, and vision.
