Who Is This For?
This 6-week training is designed for educators, caregivers, and those who work in service of youth. There is no prerequisite or prior experience required for this course. Both beginners and those with significant mindfulness experience find this training deeply impactful.
When can I access the course material?
You can login and access the course any time, according to your own schedule. We release new content each week. This means that you won't be able to access week two of your course unless you've completed week one AND one week has passed since the course began.
How much time will I need to devote to the course each week?
We estimate that, for most participants, this course will take between 2 to 3 hours per week.
Is the course self-paced? Can I go through it on my own schedule?
You're not required to be online at any specific time, and can work through the course at your own pace. That said, we highly recommend you keep up with the course from one week to the next to ensure you can interact with classmates while learning the new material.
