Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the overall well-being of children, youth and adults by equipping them with vital social and emotional literacy skills needed to navigate 21st century challenges so they may lead smart, healthy, happier lives with greater engagement in learning, work and life.

The Hawn Foundation provides MindUP™, an evidence-based, CASEL accredited curriculum and educator based training program that increases student and classroom engagement while aligning with Common Core and other academic standards. The end result improves overall child well-being, reduces stress, strengthens abilities for concentration, encourages emotional regulation, and nurtures optimism, empathy and happiness.
