Joint Educational Project - USC

The University of Southern California has implemented a service learning organization called the Joint Educational Project which places university undergraduate students in struggling urban neighborhood schools in central Los Angeles. As part of their curriculum, they feel that the many benefits of yoga should be shared with the young people in the schools.

The Joint Educational Project will now be teaching yoga to 1st through 3rd grade students to help them learn the benefits of yoga breath, asanas and meditation. They are currently serving six after school programs and were in need of mats to help make sure their program could grow. We are happy to support their efforts in the community and have sent yoga mats to help them share yoga with children!
