YEA World AfterSchool Google Expeditions will use the Goldie Hawn Foundation Mindup Program will be used for Mindfulness Training. When Goldie Hawn was a little girl, she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up.  She replied

“I want to be happy”. Her interest in happiness never dwindled.  As an adult her dream was to bring happiness to children.  She brought together a team of neuroscientists, doctors, educators, and positive psychologists to study happiness.   They created a curriculum and foundation called Mind Up . They use practices that are evidence based and backed by neurological research. The Mind Up curriculum teaches children how to quiet their mind, relax, reduce stress, develop pro-social behaviors, and learn about the brain to better understand human behavior. Optimistic classrooms that have a sense of hopefulness and joy are becoming an actuality because of her vision.
