Be the Change Outreach

Youth and Community Services

Be the Change Outreach is a tandem nonprofit project of the Be the Change Yoga and Wellness Studio in San Jose, CA.  Their mission is to make yoga and wellness practices accessible to socio-economically disadvantaged persons through community-based wellness programs that are potent in their delivery of health and healing to body, mind and spirit.

Currently, their work is downtown and on the east side of San Jose developing programs for youth, the homeless and the spanish speaking populations  in public parks and community centers that encourage wellness practices and build community. In the future, they plan on expanding their work to youth in transitional and foster care settings, bringing yoga, mindfulness and body based healing trauma work to this population, as well.
