Benefits for Teachers, Schools, and Students

An Adaptable Program

Our lessons are designed to easily integrate into a variety of themes and content standards. In fact, they complement almost any subject.

Improved School Culture and Climate

Teachers and students report reductions in aggressive actions and increases in pro-social behaviors. Through MindUP, students learn to regulate emotion and focus attention.

An Optimistic Classroom

MindUP helps teachers create a classroom environment characterized by optimism, compassion and engagement, promoting resilience and fostering expressions of gratitude, empathy, and connection to others.

An Evidence-Based Option for SEL

More than 10 years of independent research, including four randomized control trials, has substantiated MindUP’s impact on a variety of critical academic and social-emotional indicators.

Once children realize that their minds matter, it makes a difference to how they’ll learn. It reinforces the enjoyment and impact of the experience of learning.

MindUP Training

Today more than ever, children need the tools to manage stress and build resiliency. In order to continue living our mission of providing those tools for children, we have designed a training model that allows us to bring MindUP to schools virtually. We are currently offering a series of synchronous and asynchronous virtual MindUP trainings that include schools, districts, administrators and families.
