School Spotlight: New Village Girls Academy
Shout out to New Village Girls Academy for their Today Show Spotlight! This program is truly the 6 Measures in action.
From the TODAY show: As mental health issues among teens rise across the nation, one downtown Los Angeles school is turning to meditation and social-emotional skills to help its students overcome those challenges and find a new path to learning. Focusing on building deep and supportive relationships between teachers and students, the New Village Girls Academy seeks to create a safe environment to prepare the girls for life after school and offers them a second chance at success.
