The work and mission of Calmer Choice is made possible by our team of vetted and skilled instructors. We provide intentional training to grow our team and expand our reach to more students, classrooms, schools, and communities.
Being a Calmer Choice Instructor is not a volunteer position, it is a job. We take pride in providing quality evidence-based mindfulness education to our schools, and know this requires the commitment and investment of trained and qualified mindfulness educators. Our instructors are all paid part-time employees of Calmer Choice.
