The Kindness Institute dreams of a world where everyone has the tools they need to manage stress and transform their own lives. We support individuals, organisations, workplaces & schools to overcome anxiety, fear and stress, and to integrate mindfulness in a busy life.
Our core mahi is supporting youth to deal with stressful emotions, anxiety and low self efficacy. We work with youth in mainstream school, youth who've been excluded from school and youth justice. Rangatahi learn to deal with challenging emotions, conflicts and to improve their forgiveness, honest communication, empathy, focus, motivation, positive decision making and positive relationship skills. 100% of rangatahi from our core program ATAWHAI report a reduction in stress.
As a social enterprise and registered charity, donations for programs fund work with marginalised youth so that everyone can participate in mindfulness & yoga.
