Y.O.G.A. for Youth is partnering with Thomas Riley High school to bring yoga and mindfulness to new and expecting teen mom’s in south central LA. Thomas Riley High School is one of two pregnant minor schools in LA Unified School District serving pregnant and parenting middle school and high school students ranging in ages from 12 to 19. This vulnerable population is already susceptible to increased stress, instability and a host of other social and emotional challenges, which have only been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. Y.O.G.A. for Youth’s programming will provide tools for improved behavioral stability, self-esteem, physical health and scholastic aptitude. By focusing on these areas, Y.O.G.A .for Youth can address a multitude of challenges facing these young women including violence, substance abuse, obesity, eating disorders, toxic stress, truancy, poor grades, bullying, and suicide. Help us raise the funds necessary to bring these tools to the leaders of our next generation.
