Center for Resilience seeks to empower people to empower themselves through the practice of mindfulness which fosters success in the classroom, community and workplace. The Center for Resilience teaches youth about mindfulness and what it means to be mindful in and out of the classrooms. The center also has a resilient kids curriculum which focuses on social and emotional learning. Mindfulness helps reduce toxic stress, enhance concentration and grit and develop self-regulation and compassion.

Watching the videos on the teens stating their testimonies about resilience was very interesting to me. The students were empowered to change the way they act,feel about themselves and the way they are communicating with their peers and teachers. Through the different programs and resources the youth gets it really help them feel good about themselves and are engaging in learning in a positive manner. Center Resilience focuses on giving the students the skills and tools that they may not have so they can apply it to being a leader of the classroom as well as being successful.

As a result of the resilience program the children are able to use positive skills that they have learned to continue with their school day.  After returning back from lunch, recess or other free time children are able to feel empowered and encouraged to redirect themselves.
