School Partnerships

iBme is excited to be able to partner with high schools, colleges, and universities to offer retreats as a complement to existing mindfulness curriculum. We have provided retreats for students, faculty, alumni, and parents through partnerships with Middlesex School, Harvard University, UCLA, and the University of Virginia.

These retreats follow a similar schedule to our teen and young adult retreats, and can be tailored for your particular group. Our schedule includes a mix of mindfulness meditation and silent practice, small group work, fun workshops, and spending time in the natural world.

We also offer workshops and day-long events for students and teachers as an introduction to mindfulness or to support existing school mindfulness programs.

A growing body of scientific research demonstrates that mindfulness and social-emotional programs in schools improves students’:

  • Concentration, learning retention and standardized test scores
  • Inner resiliency and self-esteem
  • Attitudes about others, empathy, social interactions and classroom behavior
  • Decreases their stress and conduct problems.
