We work in collaboration with city, state, and community-based organizations throughout the five NYC boroughs to deliver mindfulness to young people in need. We also offer professional trainings to teachers, staff, and clinicians who work with vulnerable youth. Contact us if your agency would like to integrate mindfulness and yoga into your programming or organizational operations.
Our program evaluation surveys show that 87% of our program participants become more aware of their body, 91% become more aware of their thoughts, 84% feel calmer and more relaxed, and 74% discover better ways to manage stress.
“As a transfer school for previously disengaged students who are now over-age and under-credited for high school, the social and emotional support the Lineage program provides is so important. I believe it is one of the main contributing factors to the success of our students and our school.”
— Principal Paul Rotondo, Cascades High School
"I’ve learned how to be self-confident and put all my effort into everything I do. I’ve learned that everyone around us can be inspiring, and that everyone has problems in life—but we can overcome them. Thank you for teaching me how to be independent, how to trust myself in everything I do, and how to always get up and just keep moving forward whenever I fail.”
– Jocelyn, age 11, participant at Little Sisters of the Assumption, Harlem
