Compassion-based resources for children and families that employ storytelling, the arts, and environmental activities to convey the core principles of the Buddha's teachings.

What We Do

Support

With the help of lay and ordained Buddhist sangha we learn how to increase wisdom, happiness and peace in our daily lives. Our skilled contributing volunteers support these teachings with concrete activities that children and families can relate to.

Community

We build community through service while forging positive connections with local organizations and businesses. Each program brings in contributors who are true resources to children and families. Programs are free and inclusive to all.

Eco-Awareness

Each Bodhi Kids program has a strong environmental component, encouraging the understanding of interdependence and compassion in action through fun adventures in nature. All snacks and lunches are vegetarian.

Compassion

We listen to Buddhist teachings on why compassion is important.  We then engage in mindfulness activities including meditation, sacred arts, environmental awareness and group support sessions that increase our inherent capacity for compassion.

Preservation

Everything we do at Bodhi Kids is deeply rooted in the teachings of Buddhism.  We do this as these teachings have proven to be beneficial  in modern contexts and also to ensure that the sacred Buddhadharma is preserved for future generations.
