Lineage Project brings mindfulness programs to incarcerated and vulnerable youth to help them manage stress, build inner strength, and cultivate compassion. And we train organizations to develop trauma-informed and mindful cultures inside schools, detention centers, homeless shelters, and community agencies.
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.
You can help Lineage Project reach more young people in need. Volunteer with us! We need your skills in fundraising, technology, media, administration, and more. For information about volunteer opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
