PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH
CONNECT WITH US FOR INFORMATION ON THE CURRICULUMS
MAY Kids Transform has worked with thousands of youth and educators in small and large groups, in schools and educational institutions in New York City and beyond. Youth range from ages 5-25 years old. Our educators are located globally, our curriculum is used to manage their own wellness and classes. Our curriculum is non-doctrine based on ancient knowledge and modern neuroscience. We have 22 years experience and feed back from all our students.
MAY Kids aims to empower youth to the idea that we are the designers of our own lives. Our life is masterpiece created through our emotions, thoughts and actions. We build community, using a discussion-based model. We facilitate breath work, guided mindfulness practice, yoga sequences, and collaborative creative projects based on gratitude to foster self-awareness and develop emotional intelligence. Through these exercises, youth learn to self-regulate, de-stress, become connected to their self and build community with each other. We encourage thoughts of gratitude, kindness, compassion, love, communication, nutrition, sustainability, and leadership for a better quality of life.
Each day of this five-day course builds on the previous, introducing self-reflection strategies, active discussions, mindfulness practices, breath work, yoga, and art projects. On completion of the workshop, students have a deeper understanding of themselves, mindfulness practice and connection to their community.
