What is Life Skills and Mindfulness Programming?

Life Skills and Mindfulness programming allows children and adults to acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, establish and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions .

Catapult Learning’s Life Skills and Mindfulness programming is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges as a result of supportive relationships that make learning challenging, engaging, and meaningful. Our programs, with focuses on Counseling, Family Engagement, and Professional Development, expand students’ 21st century skills in critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and empathy—all necessary for success in college, careers, and beyond.

Our programming is built around the following five key competencies:

  • Self-Awareness

  • Self-Management
  • Social Awareness
  • Relationship Skills
  • Responsible Decision Making

Our Approach

Life Skills and Mindfulness programs address the specific needs of each school. To develop these programs, our coaches conduct a thorough needs assessment of each school to create and implement the most effective programs.

1. Needs Assessment

Designated coaches engage schools in a needs assessment process in which administrators identify Life Skills and Mindfulness strengths and gaps, and how best to support students and their families, staff, and the community. Schoolwide Life Skills and Mindfulness program implementation also requires an assessment of policies and practices, and how the school’s culture can shift to facilitate the development of key competencies for both students and the adults in the building.

2. Program Implementation

Using data from our needs assessment, we will structure a Life Skills and Mindfulness program for your school that can include the following services (based on need):
