Peace Week, Next Week: Mindful Kids Peace Summit
Coming up next week: September 23rd through September 27th, sign up for The Mindful Kids Peace Summit for tweens and teens. It’s an online initiative for middle and high schools, providing curriculum to help engage students aged 11 to 17 in social emotional learning, positive psychology, enhanced physical and mental health and wellbeing, and mindfulness. Students learn ways to cope with stress, deal with emotions, and learn about how to contribute to their social and emotional well-being.
Videos will address subjects like diversity, inclusion, communication, kindness, anti- bullying, mindfulness as a tool to deal with stress, learning to interact with others, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-compassion, resilience, positive psychology, collaboration, empathy, and more. Fifteen-year-old Adam Avin interviews many of the pioneers in the mindfulness and psychology fields including Jennifer Miller of Confident Parents, Confident Kids. More than 50 subject matter experts talk, demo, or give a presentation, and in between segments, celebrities speak about their health and wellness, and why mindfulness and kindness are so important.
Schools that register for the summit have access to it throughout the school year so they can watch the 45 hours of content at their leisure. There are videos, lesson plans, suggested activities, projects, and discussion points for parents and teachers to download if they want as well, so teachers, if they choose, can continue an open dialogue with the kids each day.
The Summit is Free during Peace Week, Sept 23-27th. Purchase the Summit for $99 per school if purchased prior to Sept 23rd. Thereafter, the Summit will be $169. Register today!
