Shortly after 9/11, Lantieri saw how educators were struggling to keep the horror of that day from permanently damaging the kids. That’s when she came up with the Inner Resilience Program—mindfulness training geared to help teachers in New York. More than 6,000 staff, 3,000 parents, and 40,000 students have gone through Lantieri’s Inner Resilience Program to date.
Now, Lantieri is asking for help for this groundbreaking work to continue. Donations will be matched one-to-one by the 1440 Foundation if you donate by December 15, 2014.
