Population Served: marginalized teen girls
Since 2005, The Art of Yoga Project has been working to end cycles of violence and victimization for teen girls in the juvenile justice system. We serve over 700 marginalized girls each year in detention and rehabilitation centers, alternative high schools, centers for substance abuse recovery and sites for young women involved in sex trafficking. We also have affiliate programs nationwide that license our yoga and creative arts curricula for use in their own communities. Our mission is to bring girls tools for self-regulation and a life-long discipline for healing, empowerment and well-being.
