“The most important thing I learned is how to step away from stressful thoughts and to be able to see the bigger picture.”

Amplify Impact & Outcomes

This year, in 70 classrooms, over 1900 teens are learning how to develop calm, curiosity, and care. In addition, over 400 of their teachers are also learning invaluable tools to reduce Secondary Stress.

With your support, we are creating Conscious Classrooms. Classrooms where students love to learn and teachers love to teach.

Let’s keep amplifying the impact. Every additional student and teacher we reach further creates a culture of care.

Help us create more conscious classrooms and reach 800 students Spring 2020!

When students go through the Inner Strength program, good things happen:

  • Self regulation, stress reduction, positive exploration, contextual thinking, and care for self and other, becomes the norm.
  • School climate improves.
  • Peer friendships improve.
  • Study habits improve.
  • Support for one another improves.
  • Students fuels their own momentum which helps everyone succeed!
  • Teacher fatigue and burnout decreases.
  • Happier teachers are more creative, caring, and inspirational.
  • We all win!

Our mission is to enable every high school student in Philadelphia to learn tools of mindfulness and a developmental perspective and support their higher potentials. It’s a big mission. Step-by-step, life-by-life, classroom-by-classroom, we are getting there.

By December 31, 2019, more than 7,000 teens and 1,500 teachers will have been supported and trained by Inner Strength.

Your ongoing support has made all this possible. Give generously, the leaders of the future will thank you with their wisdom and their kindness!
