Mindfulness & Student Voice

Mindfulness is happening in one way or another in all 130 Austin ISD campuses thanks to collaborative work within the district. None of this would be possible, however, without student voice. Buy-in, feedback and leadership from students is what is helping mindfulness grow in Austin ISD. This session will be moderated by the AISD SEL Mindfulness Specialist and include 3 Austin ISD students who will provide their voice by sharing mindfulness experiences and how it fosters youth empowerment.
