School Reset

Reset believes that when the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students are met school communities thrive. Our Instructors combine Mindfulness Based Strategies with Trauma Informed Care to implement sustainable mindfulness practices among students, educators, and care-givers empowering individuals to be more self-aware, better self-regulate, and cultivate self-resiliency. We facilitate school resets through our In-Classroom Program, our Mindful Mentors Program, and a variety of Educator Workshops.
