Organization Mission and Vision:
The School Mindfulness Project, (SMP) is a Philadelphia non-profit that serves to enhance the physical, behavioral and academic wellbeing of Philadelphia’s underserved school communities. Through the provision of our five-phase program model of school-based mindfulness and yoga we educate whole-school communities (teachers and students alike), systemically integrating programming into a school’s culture, while enabling the practice to become truly sustainable. The members of our organization are dedicated in their aim to level the playing field in education to yield opportunities that have historically been inaccessible for our underserved students.
Our immediate mission is to support students and staff in our school communities by providing tools and services that allow for improved self-regulation and school-wide shifts in climate. By improving a school’s communal climate, as well as enhancing teachers’ and students’ ability to self-regulate, we can cultivate classroom learning environments that can more readily nurture the kind of skillful choice-making that can support successful short and long term academic outcomes for students.
Because SMP’s program empowers school communities to integrate programming into their existing curricula, programming and its benefits endure beyond the period of on-site program implementation, enabling matriculating students to take their new skills with them into successive academic years, adolescence and adulthood, becoming pillars of the practice for themselves and their communities, in and out of the classroom. Whether students return to SMP and become SMP educators or take their skill set to the workforce, college, family life or beyond, they will be equipped and supported for success.
Please apply if you meet the stated qualifications and are motivated to help us achieve our mission of providing sustainable wellbeing to underserved school communities. Our hope is that the right candidate will prove to be a perfect fit for our organization and raise funds sufficient to transition this part time position into a fulltime position in years to come. We’d like you to be with us when we can look out across our city, county and country and see true and lasting equity in education. Submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 30, 2020.
