Mindful Practices uses a comprehensive, equity-centered, and tech-driven approach to push the boundaries of SEL by prioritizing student and teacher well-being, fueled by student voice, and agency.
Founded in 2006, Mindful Practices (MP) is a national professional development organization that has been providing SEL services to the public school system for over a decade using a comprehensive, equity centered, and tech-driven approach to push the boundaries of SEL by prioritizing student and teacher well-being, fueled by student voice and agency.
When we talk about SEL we’re not only sharing beliefs–we’re sharing facts. We know that building emotional intelligence can lead to lifelong skills of compassion and intentionality. We have the empirical data, and the lived experiences of children and teachers backing us up. When it comes to SEL we know what we’re talking about. Look no further than the impact of our work.
We use the latest research and technology to disrupt the status quo by identifying, addressing, and managing problems before they start. We listen, facilitate and provide learning experiences for students and teachers. By equipping educational institutions and teachers with SEL tools we are working to transform their individual efforts into a major shift in the educational system.

“I am proud of Mindful Practices—the work we do and what we stand for. Why choose Mindful Practices? Because we will work arm in arm with educators in your district to make sure human connection is a priority in your schools. To make sure that every student has a voice and that every educator has the tools they need to respond to that voice in kind. We know what it takes to make an impact and we will help you get there, one breath at a time.”
CEO Rob Philbert created Class Catalyst, an EdTech SEL tool that utilizes individual student check-ins to promote student voice and strengthen student-educator relationships.
“We all need help being our best selves. I’m honored to be part of a team dedicated to helping others create the space they need to grow. My passion is to figure out how we can help more people in the process.”
