In keeping with our goal to support youth in accessing their inner wisdom and realizing their dreams, we welcome requests for funding from teachers and school-based mental health professionals serving students in grades 9 through 12 in the Hudson Valley.
Educator Mini-Grants are awarded for up to $500, and we only fund programs that have not yet begun at the time of application submission. Funds will be awarded for new programs that support our mission to “empower youth to access their inner wisdom and realize their dreams”, or new initiatives that are part of existing programs.
Funded programs or initiatives should focus on improving awareness of mental health issues among teens, developing social-emotional learning strategies for teachers, building mutual support and caring among teens and adults, strengthening inner resilience, or teaching mindfulness practice.
“Thank you for this opportunity to better support my high school students. The grant allowed me to purchase materials for a new SEL program and it has made a real impact on them.”
