My first reaction: WOW!!!
I can honestly say I have never seen a program such as this one before. To do the assignment, I did it in the order that it was provided and watching the first two videos I was a little confused about what the program actually did. Once I started watching all of the videos and looking over the website I got a better understanding of the whole program and I think it is WONDERFUL!!
Something that really stuck out to me in the YouTube video was one of the little boys talking about how this program not only helped him control his anger in school but also at him. This is an important factor because it is proving just how well this program is working not only in a school setting but at home as well . This just goes to show what kind of effect this program is having on students.
To foster the social, emotional and academic growth of children and young people through mindfulness curricula seamlessly integrated into the school culture.
Our professionally- trained, dedicated instructors work in partnership with school administrators and classroom teachers to reduce stress and behaviors that interfere with learning, to accelerate positive student outcomes.
It may not seem like a big deal, but I loved how on the website it was so easy to find the mission because I believe a mission is one of the most important aspects of an organization. Missions truly intrigue me because I believe it shows what an organization stands for and how they plan on carrying it through. The mission for "Resilient Kids" gives clear cut plans for what the programs objectives are, and according to the videos, website, and statistics of the program, it is clear that the program is a success to all the schools it services along with a majority of the students.
I don’t think I can say it enough but this program is amazing and I wish there was something like this when I was in school!!
