It Takes a Village

Dearest friends and colleagues,

I am thrilled to announce that earlier this year I co-founded a non-profit organization called EmpowerED Pathways. This educational non-profit is a manifestation of my personal and professional work over the past two decades, merging my expertise in mind/body practices, education, public health, and community relations. I am so grateful for the friends and family who have encouraged and supported me on this journey. We couldn't have gotten this far without your indirect or direct support and, for this, I am deeply grateful.


Research shows that empowering educators, youth and communities with learning experiences that promote mindfulness and emotional intelligence strengthens their neurological pathways. Our goal is to provide research-based tools to foster the resiliency and mindsets for living with the challenges of modern life. We believe this essential, yet often overlooked, aspect of educating the next generation will create a more peaceful, understanding and compassionate society. View our current programming for more details on how we do our work. 


This weekend, we began actively raising funds to provide the financial resources needed to support our vision and mission. Since we are a 501(c)3 organization, 100% of contributions go directly into programming and development, and are 100% tax deductible. Any amount of financial support you are able to give is so appreciated. Donate today to our #GivingTuesday campaign to help us reach our goal of raising $5000 to support program development and resource production. Thank you for your contributions, as well as promoting our organization with your friends and families! 

With deepest gratitude,

Sarah S. Bentley, MPH
