COMPASSIONATE CONNECTIONS

Our youth face obstacles day in and day out which for some are manageable and others insurmountable.  They are thrown in a society that preys on innocence, mandates high expectations while never providing the tools to teach them how to preserve self-worth, self-esteem and courage to endure through life’s’ unexpected hardships.  This is about the ‘village’ that needs to be more compassionate, more patient and much more aware of the ‘silence’ that our youth turns to when they are in ‘need’ and feeling alone and desperate. 

We need to collaborate with parents and educators (the ‘Village’) to provide an ongoing support system from kindergarten to at least 2nd year of college.  MMission97 is active in the following:

Journaling

In many cases, writing down our thoughts help to work through our thoughts and feelings.

Then, after each entry, to read the Mantra on the back by first saying, 'I will'.

ToolBox

Learning how to be present with our emotions and create mindful tokens to help us mend when needed without cause for judgement or shame. Here we can start elementary school age children creating items to keep in their own 'mindful' tool box, so when they are having a hard time fully expressing their feelings, they can find comfort in using their tools.
