Uplift hundreds of teens with the tools of calm, curiosity, and care!

Amplify Impact & Outcomes

Your gift empowers teens with tools that support resilience, empathy, and aspiration. Adolescence is a unique stage of life. Teens are discovering and developing their passions, reaching for higher goals, and defining meaning and purpose in their own lives. It is a precious period, one where life-long habits are set.Guidance to really aim high and believe in themselves can help a teen truly rise up.

This year, in 80 online classrooms, 2400 teens are learning how to develop calm, curiosity, and care. In addition, all of their teachers are learning invaluable tools to reduce 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 and create a culture of care.
When students go through the Inner Strength program, good things happen:

  • Self regulation, stress and trauma reduction, curiosity, critical thinking, and kindness towards self and other becomes the norm.
  • School climate improves.
  • Peer friendships improve.
  • Study habits improve.
  • Teacher fatigue and burnout decreases.
  • Happier teachers inspire students.
  • Students reach higher.
  • 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, with your help, we are getting there.

By the close of this academic year, 15,000 students and 1,500 teachers will have been supported by Inner Strength. Your ongoing donations have made all this possible.

Give generously and the leaders of the future will thank you with their wisdom and their kindness!
