About The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education

Dedicated to educating the hearts of children and youth, the Dalai Lama Center (DLC) equips adults who work with and care for young people with the most current evidence-informed practices and knowledge in social and emotional learning.

The DLC believes in nurturing positive human qualities like compassion and kindness in children and youth through heart-centred learning environments, to support their healthy development for life. 

The DLC's role is to translate research that will advance both the knowledge and practice of heart-mind well-being into system-wide action, through community-based programs, workshops, and online initiatives, including Heart-Mind Online, a free, evidence-informed resource website. By sharing best practices in social and emotional learning, the Dalai Lama Center empowers those who work with and care for children and youth to help them feel secure and calm, alert and engaged, to solve problems peacefully, to get along with others, and be compassionate and kind.

Thanks to donors like yourself, last year alone the Dalai Lama Center impacted over 700,000 young people. Your donation to the Heart-Mind Well-Being Foundation supports the social and  emotional development and mental health of children, youth, and families, leading towards a more peaceful, equitable, and compassionate society.
