Lineage Project brings mindfulness programs to incarcerated, homeless, and academically vulnerable youth to help them manage stress, build inner strength, and cultivate compassion. We also train youth-serving staff and organizations in the development of mindful and trauma-conscious cultures and practices.
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-conscious mindfulness programming for vulnerable youth.
