Lineage Project teaches mindfulness practices to young people navigating incarceration, homelessness, school suspension, and academic challenges. We also train organizations in the development of mindful and trauma-conscious cultures and practices.
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-conscious mindfulness programming for vulnerable youth.
Over the years, volunteers have been instrumental in helping Lineage Project grow its impact. We need your skills in fundraising, program administration, data management, technology, media, and more. For information about volunteer opportunities, email firstname.lastname@example.org. In your message, specify what skills and expertise you would like to offer; share your resume; and indicate what sort of monthly time commitment you have in mind. We are extremely grateful to everyone who generously offers their time to Lineage in this way, and will reach out to you if we identify a suitable volunteer assignment that aligns with the sort of contribution you wish to make.
