Every summer, hundreds of teens from across the country sign up for our mindfulness retreats to discover and be themselves among a caring community of peers and mentors.

Making a gift of any size will help sustain these vital circles of trust and nurture the boundless potential of young people.

become a retreat mentor

Being a retreat mentor is a nourishing and powerful opportunity as well as a big commitment. The primary role of our mentors is to support the teens in their practice and their time on retreat by creating a safe space. Through this support, teens can explore their experience and increased self-awareness, and find more freedom to choose how they want to be in the world. We look for people with a dedication to mindfulness meditation and an interest in supporting youth.
