We envision a World where all children know they have a voice to stand up for themselves, to ask for the help they need to reach their goals, and to stand up for others with compassion and empathy. Did you know, over 20% of kids under the age of 15 experience bullying? And according to recent research, "A lot of kids don't understand that manipulating friendships and relationships is bullying..." - Trudy Ludwig. Mini Mermaid and Young Triton's Curriculum addresses the inner critic, fear, shame, bullying, resilience AND relational exclusion. In our curriculums, over 20 activities are dedicated to navigating relationships.
We are working hard in 2017 to grow Mini Mermaids and Young Tritons into a strong organization that serves kids ALL across the world, no matter what their circumstances and you are helping us get there. Whether you enroll your child in Mini Mermaids or Young Tritons, become an ambassador, donate, buy a SUPER COOL NEW sweatshirt from our apparel store, sign up for our Run. Sweat. Love. 5k, or volunteer - you are helping us reach our goals.
We are excited for the year ahead where we will work tirelessly to invest in the next generation and ourselves as we teach AND learn, self-kindness, resilience, common humanity, and empathy. Join us? - Heidi Boynton, Executive Director
