How Your Support Makes a Difference
New Leaf Yoga Foundation is a true innovator, offering yoga and mindfulness-based programs to youth in some of the most stigmatized and least-served communities in Ontario since 2007.
This year we are offering 30 long-term programs that will reach approximately 1200 youth. Additionally, in order to respond to continuing demand, our programs will be expanding to include support for parents, staff, and frontline youth workers, as well as additional leadership opportunities for our participants.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 which will contribute to our 30 programs and the rollout of our Whole Schools Initiative which will include a training developed to equip school teachers to offer mindfulness-based practices in their classrooms on a daily basis.
