Lifelong Tools to Build Resilience
Learning healthy coping skills can be fun, playful and light-hearted with our evidence-based curriculum.
Through a playful and engaging approach, we share a blend of mind/body tools proven to soothe the nervous system. Evidence-based practices and curriculum help participants utilize deep breathing, mindfulness, yoga postures/embodiment, cooperative games, and guided imagery to craft their own unique toolbox of stress resilience strategies they can use in daily life.
There will be space to collaborate and build community along with time for individual exploration. This is a welcoming space that empowers students to show up authentically and no experience is required. Fun is always a “must”!

For three years we worked with the Denver Afterschool Alliance (DAA) and their Quality Counts system to engage in a continuous quality improvement process.
The process of improvement involved data collection using the Weikart Center‘s Program Quality Assessment (PQA). One key takeaway from our engagement with the DAA was the development of an evidence-based program and curriculum rooted in promising practices of youth development as defined by the Weikart Center’s PQA.
