The Maya Gold Foundation offers “Tools and Teachings for Trying Times” to youth in grades 6th - 8th.
The Maya Gold Foundation’s Community Programs Committee developed an offering for youth to specifically meet their needs during the stay-at-home orders regarding COVID19. The Maya Gold Foundation is offering the online program “Tools and Teachings for Trying Times” again, this time for middle-schoolers! This four week program is an offering to Hudson Valley youth designed to build resiliency, coping skills, and inner peace.
The course is facilitated by Gigi and Mikaela Falk, who have brought a deep connection to this work.
“Our goal is to help others see themselves and the world in novel and eye-opening ways. Through this Community Program, we explore what “the Art of Human Being” is all about. We look at what it means to be human and we connect to our humanity by exploring topics like authentic connection, open-hearted listening, and perspective shifting. We’re planting seeds that we hope will offer opportunities for greater reflection, authenticity, courage, and passion in daily life. Ultimately, we’re just sharing what we wish we learned in school,” comments Gigi Falk.
The program is geared towards youth in grades 6th - 8th and will run on Wednesdays for four consecutive weeks in June (6/3, 6/10, 6/17, 6/24) from 4 - 5:30 p.m. Registration for the course is open to all interested youth in grades 6th - 8th at no cost.
This program is offered over Zoom and enrollment is limited to 15 participants per session; applications will be accepted until the session is full. Commitment to all four sessions is expected.
