Hamilton County Juvenile Court Youth Center

Mindful Youth provides weekly programming to the youth who are currently incarcerated in the Youth Center. Interacting with an average of eight young people per week, Mindful Youth offers experiential mindfulness training with accompanying messages surrounding responsible decision making, empathy, and reduction of impulsivity.

 

Youth have shown an increased ability to manage emotions, an increase in self-awareness, and an improved capacity for perspective taking.

 

Mindful Youth continues to provide weekly programming at the Youth Center and once funding is secured, would like to expand programming at this location.
