Still Kids

What is the injustice we are solving?
StillKids fosters mindfullness in adolescence in the juvenile justice system. We use yoga, meditation and reflection to help these kids cope and thrive in an otherwise chaotic world. We are in rural Kirksville Missouri.

Hi Catherine,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for an Accelerator, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Hey! This project sounds really awesome -- thanks for sharing it with us! I'm wondering -- how did you come up with the idea to do this? What injustices did you see that made you feel this was needed?

Let us know how we can be helpful! There are many people here who have experience writing curriculum, building mindfulness, and working with young people in crisis. Feel free to post a question if you have one!
