Mindful Me program for 4-H Cloverbuds (ages 5 - 8)
Beginning June 9th, Franklin County 4-H will be offering this FREE Mindful Me program. You don't need to be a resident of Franklin County to participate. Each week we will have a different interactive session that will last approximately 30 minutes.

Mindful Me, introduces youth, ages 5-8 years old, to basic concepts in mindfulness practices. The program promotes mindful practices that lead to improvements in managing one’s own goals, developing a sense of self, time management, stress management, emotional regulation, and mindful eating practices. Specific outcomes from youth participation in the curriculum include short-term (skill development and knowledge gain), mid-term (increased stress management, mindful eating etc.), and long-term (improved physical, emotional, and social health) benefits.
