Mindfulness in Youth and Education


Mindfulness in youth and education is a critical aspect of promoting well-being, emotional regulation, and cognitive development among students.


When implementing mindfulness practices in educational settings, it is paramount to uphold good practice, adhere to high standards, and maintain an ethical approach. The importance of these principles cannot be overstated as they ensure that mindfulness programs are delivered in a responsible and effective manner that maximises the benefits for students.

Our values at the British Association for Mindfulness-Based Approaches (BAMBA) advocate for the highest standards of mindfulness teaching and training, promoting integrity, professionalism, and ethical conduct within the field. By upholding these standards, BAMBA reinforces the credibility and effectiveness of mindfulness interventions in education and beyond.

At BAMBA, our intentions are to actively engage and contribute to the mindfulness landscape in education. By being present in this space, we aim to support educators, students, and practitioners in cultivating mindfulness skills that promote mental health, resilience, and overall well-being.

Through our commitment to excellence, ethics, and continuous learning, we strive to enhance the quality and impact of mindfulness programmes in educational settings.
