Since 2008, Empowered Minds and its team of 30+ volunteer teachers have been teaching yoga and mindfulness to public school children in Charleston County. Pre-Covid, we were leading yoga and mindfulness classes for 1000+ students per week.
As we all know, the pandemic put increased pressure on our children, staff and families. We are here, as we always have been, for them. But we need your help!
For the first time ever, we are reaching out to you in community to invite you to:
EMPOWER THE CHILDREN!
In response to this increased demand from the district for trauma relief and mental health support, we set the goal to raise $50,000 before our inaugural fundraiser in August. It would help us match a paid yoga ambassador with each of our partner schools, who would coordinate the volunteer effort and anchor compassionate classroom culture in each school.
This funding would also enable us to pilot our 200-hour teacher training program, in which we will train and certify high school students--whom we've taught yoga and mindfulness to since they were Kindergarteners-- so that they can pass the gift of these tools to the younger students.
To continue this important work we need YOU!
We will gather and practice to a live music with DJ Moldybrain. You will learn our story and about the work we do.
