Describe the creative youth microprojects that your nonprofit would fundraise for if you win.

:

Through the use of Yoga, our "Be the Change..." project addresses some of the major components associated with bullying.

We are committed to alleviating bullying and other self defeating behaviors that are prevalent among today’s youth.

The "Be the Change..." project teaches life changing skills to youth in schools, community centers and juvenile detention centers. Using basic yoga postures, challenging physical exercise, breathing and deep relaxation techniques to reduce compulsive behavior, lower stress and increase mental and physical vitality.

Explain how possibly gaining funding through the Give for Youth platform would better able you to complete these projects.

Gaining funding through the Give for Youth platform would allow us to bring our program to places we may have not been able to reach in the past. It will allow our organization to spend less time on raining funds and more time on helping the children who need our program the most.

So many of our youth do not have the basic human skills to handle the challenges of life. YOGA for Youth has been providing these tools so that they can have a chance to rewrite the scripts and patterns using yoga and meditation. When the inner conflicts and confusion are resolved, then self-respect and creativity can unfold.
