Collaborative Relationships Lead to Community Program

IMG_1730.JPGEast Bay 3 Principles (EB3P) collaborated with Center for Sustainable Change (CSC) to educate, ground, inspire and support people who share a Three Principles approach to life and volunteer in programs, institutions, and organizations that serve children, youth, and young adults in their communities. This project was funded by a grant for several CSC projects from The San Francisco Foundation. A copy of Ami Chen Mills-Naim’s book - State of Mind in the Classroom: Thought, Consciousness and the Essential Curriculum for Healthy Learning was given to all participants attending (in-person) the first week of training in Berkeley, California.
