With just one hour a week, you can help bring mindfulness and social-emotional learning to public school classrooms. Learning to understand emotions and how to manage them with skill is one of the most important lessons any human being can learn. Based on Andrew Nance’s Mindful Arts in the Classroom curriculum, volunteers will teach elementary school students various techniques to help them cultivate the skill of present-moment awareness. Volunteers must have a background in mindfulness, a current mindful practice, or be willing to serve in an assistant teaching role.
You will lead weekly 20-25 minute mindfulness sessions for students in transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, first-, second-or third-grade classrooms. Using the Mindful Arts in the Classroom curriculum, you will engage students through books, art activities, theater games, and mindfulness exercises.
