About Mind Yeti and Committee for Children

Are you looking [LW1] for an opportunity to work with an innovative and entrepreneurial team whose products make a real difference in kids’ lives? Committee for Children is a nonprofit working globally to foster children’s social-emotional development and prevent bullying, violence, and child abuse. Our research-based social-emotional learning programs are used in more than 25,000 schools in the US and 70 countries around the world. These programs help more than 13 million children each year stay safe, respect themselves and others, succeed in school today, and build a better world for tomorrow.

Committee for Children’s innovation lab, New Mission Ventures, has launched Mind Yeti, a new brand committed to helping kids and their adults reduce stress, improve focus, and build empathy through mindfulness. Recent studies show that just a few minutes of mindfulness each day can boost the regions of the brain that help regulate emotions and solve problems. Mind Yeti makes daily mindfulness fun and easy for kids and adults everywhere, both at home and in the classroom. Learn more at www.mindyeti.com.
