About


Our Mission

Lineage Project brings mindfulness programs to incarcerated, homeless, and academically vulnerable youth to help them manage stress, build inner strength, and cultivate compassion. Lineage also trains youth-serving staff and organizations to develop trauma-informed, mindful cultures. 

About Lineage Project

Founded in New York City in 1999, Lineage Project began delivering mindfulness to adolescents on Rikers Island. We now provide programs in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, and the Bronx, serving youth who are justice-involved, homeless, suspended from school, and in high-need public schools. We also offer professional trainings to teachers, social workers, frontline staff, and caregivers, helping them gain competency in providing trauma-informed mindfulness programming for vulnerable youth.

Published research shows that our work helps young people manage their anger, reduce reactivity, cope with high levels of stress and anxiety, and may reduce justice re-involvement
