The mission of the Montana Mindfulness Project is to foster confidence, wellbeing and resilience in youth & young adults by providing mindfulness tools in our communities and schools.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness programs help students develop self-awareness and pro-social, positive mind states like empathy, kindness, generosity, and gratitude. The approach of mindfulness is that these qualities are not simply innate traits, but are skills that can be actively fostered and strengthened through mental training. Research suggests that students who practice mindfulness consistently show improved academic achievement, mental health, and relationships with self and others.

How do we implement our programs?

We help build healthy communities by inspiring individual and systemic change through mindfulness-based interventions, offered in a variety of formats for individuals, schools and workplaces.

Our community of qualified teachers, facilitators and coaches provide evidence-based mindfulness programs that show substantial and lasting benefits for participants.

Our age-appropriate programs include 20 to 24-week courses for K-12 classrooms, custom-designed workshops for youth organizations, and retreats for young adults. In addition, we offer workshops and retreats for educator professionals and staff.

Serving youth and young adults to grow a kinder world.
