Getting youth to shine means addressing the social and emotional skills they’ll need for the challenges and opportunities they’re bound to face outside the school walls. While ABC’s and 123’s are great, even the most dedicated teacher can’t truly prepare his or her students without going beyond academics and outside the textbook.  Join us for 6 sessions and get certified as a facilitator of our Mindfulness Ambassador Council (MAC), an evidence-based intervention which will help prepare youth for a future as knowledgeable, responsible, and caring citizens.

As part of the training, participants have access to MWB’s educational materials but are not entitled to replicate, reproduce or modify the MAC Student Guidebook, MAC Facilitator Guidebook, lesson plans, handouts, and questionnaires without expressed permission from Mindfulness Without Borders. Mindfulness Without Borders retains all intellectual property rights to the Mindfulness Ambassador Council Student and Facilitator Guidebooks.
