The Nonprofit Organization  Behind Mind Yeti

Committee for Children

Committee for Children is on a mission to ensure children everywhere can thrive emotionally, socially, and academically. Best known for our innovative social-emotional learning curricula that blend research and rigor with intuitive program design, we empower more than 14 million children each year with skills to help them realize their goals in the classroom and throughout their lives. A force in advocacy, we're helping pass policies and legislation that place importance on creating safe and supportive learning environments. 

In 2016, Committee for Children brought together award-winning creative partners and top experts in mindfulness research to develop Mind Yeti, the premiere product launched from our innovations lab. A research-based tool with guided mindfulness sessions, Mind Yeti helps kids and adults settle the Hubbub and create safer, kinder communities.
