The Quiet Time Program was launched in California at San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley Middle School in 2007. Designed for grades 5 through 12, Quiet Time was implement school-wide to create a positive learning environment and promote balance within the school. The program has dramatically reduced school stress, in-school violence, and absenteeism all while improving students’ capacity to learn, effectively turning one of the district’s lowest performing schools into one of its highest performing schools. Now Quiet Time is in place at additional public schools in San Francisco, as well as Washington, D.C., Detroit, and Los Angeles. The David Lynch Foundation would like to extend this success into the New York tri-state area. It is our goal that, with the help of the Give For Youth platform and GOOD Inc., the David Lynch Foundation will implement Quiet Time in a minimum of three New York City public schools over the next three years.See Idea Details remind me
