Youth Services Organizations

The Hawn Foundation works in partnership with youth services and community organizations to bring MindUP™ to before and after school programs. We encourage schools and youth service organizations to share the goal of ensuring the academic success and social emotional growth of young people. MindUP™ fosters the development of social skills and encourages attitudes of empathy and gratitude. Building on emotional competencies acquired through MindUP™ lessons, acts of kindness are emphasized in the hope of inspiring children to become lifelong contributors to their communities.

The Hawn Foundation works with Boys & Girls Clubs; YMCAs; United Way Early Childhood Center for Excellence and others.
