Compassionate Young Leaders Program


This program is designed for high school students and will begin each school year with a one hundred hour local community service project. The Flourish Foundation will provide assistance in matching students with a local organization that aligns with their own unique interest and expertise. Along with facilitating relationships between students and community leaders, the Flourish Foundation will equip each student with intrapersonal skills that will support them in sustaining their service efforts throughout the year. To achieve this goal, students will be introduced to contemplative practices that are specifically designed for developing focused attention and compassion.

During the year, students will also participate in several organized workshops focusing on leadership, fundraising, and preparation for volunteering abroad. These workshops will be offered by the Flourish Foundation and the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT. At the end of the school year, students will take a trip to Ladakh, India and collaborate with Ladakhi high school students in implementing programs that promote sustainability, education, and health. The Compassionate Young Leaders Program will culminate in an organized community presentation where students will reflect upon their experiences throughout the year.

It is our belief that compassion can be nurtured at the deepest level when cultivated inwardly through contemplative practices and outwardly through community service efforts.
