The Calm Schools Initiative Gives Free Mindfulness Training Tools To Teachers

In today’s rapidly changing world, children face unique social and emotional challenges. Kids are experiencing greater pressures earlier in life, and feel more stress and anxiety than ever before.

What if their school day began with a few moments of quiet and stillness? Numerous studies have shown the many benefits of teaching mindfulness to children. Through mindfulness education, kids can develop a lifelong capacity for greater self-awareness, concentration, patience and resilience.

Meanwhile, educators face pressures of their own. Many teachers understand the benefits of mindfulness, but they face time and budget constraints, making it challenging to bring mindfulness education to the classroom.

Enter, The Calm Schools Initiative, which offers every teacher in the world free access to Calm, the mindfulness app that hundreds of thousands of people all over the world use everyday. The goal is to empower teachers with mindfulness tools and resources they can use to help kids learn this new skill.

Under this initiative, any teacher with a K-12 classroom, anywhere in the world, can get free access to Calm’s paid subscription service (available on Android, iOS and the web). Teachers will have unlimited access to our growing library of guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, including Calm Kids, our programs tailored for age groups from pre-K through high school. Over the coming year, we will be steadily adding to the Calm Kids library, equipping teachers with an ever-expanding supply of content crafted for the unique needs of their students.

The goal is to enroll 100,000 classrooms this year, improving the lives of more than one million children.

If you’re a teacher, simply fill out the simple form by visiting www.calm.com/schools, and you’ll be approved for The Calm Schools Initiative within a few days. Once you’re approved, you’ll receive some resources to help you get started, including share tips, suggestions and the best practices to introduce mindfulness to your classroom and get your students excited about meditation.
