"A great program to build a Happy & Enthusiastic Younger Generation!"
For 108 Days...YES! for Schools is reaching out to you to help fund vital programs that reduce stress in young peoples' lives. Stress accounts for more than just simple psychological tension. It leads to depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying, and violent confrontations.
We are facing budget restrictions in every school district throughout the nation. Principals and administrators who LOVE the YES! for Schools program and what it has done for students, teachers and staff are scrambling to allocate discretionary funds to retain the program.
You can help. Make a contribution during the Generosity 108 Campaign!
Take a breath. In stressful situations, sometimes that's all it takes to restore our minds and stop us from reacting in violent or self-destructive ways.
We all wish for our children feel encouraged and nurtured in creativity and learning. Healthy bodies, healthy minds, healthy lifestyle...it's every parent's hope for their kids. In an educational environment increasingly dominated by testing, standards and rankings, where resources are scarce, and stress dominates personal interactions, is it possible create space for the whole child, her creativity, her light, and her values to flourish?
YES! for Schools provides young people with tools for healthy living through daily breathing, yoga-based stretching, self-awareness, and pro-social workshops designed to enhance a sense of compassion and belonging among peers.
Over the next 108 days, with the help of all our friends, we hope to raise $1,001 dollars a day to sustain programs and train more teachers, reach more schools, and Breath Life Into Education. Your support makes a difference. With your help we can raise $108,108.00 in 108 days!
Supporting the Generosity 108 campaign is simple. You can pledge as much as you like, and break it down to a monthly or quarterly installment on your credit card or from your bank account. For example, to support "One Teacher, One School, One Semester" is an annual gift of $10,800.00. Broken down monthly, that comes to a generous commitment of $900 each month. Or choose a gift of daily breathing--$108, which can be paid in quarterly installments of $27, or even as little as $9 per month. Whatever the size of your gift, you are making a BIG difference for the children and schools we serve. Please be as generous as you can and choose the level best for you, and make your contribution monthly, quarterly or as a single gift.
YES! for Schools provides young people with a designated period of calm reflection, guided breathing, stretching and exercise, and workshops on human values like kindness, compassion, generosity and hope. By creating space for calm reflection, students and teachers can access the values that guide us to make better choices, be less impulsive, and enjoy life. Our teachers are there for the students, the staff, the parents, and the entire school community. So far over 80,000 children have been given the tools to find confidence, resilience and peace in the face of adversity and stress. YES! for Schools curriculum is based in experiential learning. Our teachers are on-site, mentoring and providing support where it is most needed. Trained in our targeted breathing techniques, conflict resolution, exercise and nutrition, our trained teachers nurture human values such as responsibility, respect, friendliness, kindness and cooperation.
