An “Aspire” middle school in Los Angeles is now able to deliver the DLF’s Quiet Time program to more than 90 at-risk students, thanks to a generous donation from the Aileen Getty Foundation. Several of the students struggle with learning disabilities and even symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Getty Foundation donation also enabled DLF to continue its ongoing partnerships with New Village Charter High School, an innovative school offering personalized education for girls in a small class setting; Children of the Night, an internationally-respected teen shelter offering rehabilitation and high school education to victims of sex-trafficking; and an LA-based charter school offering over 500 indigenous students a rigorous course of study and knowledge of their native cultural values.

“When I meditate, I feel like I have a key that opens me up to a whole new world,” reported a 12-year-old boy with ADHD who attends the Aspire middle school.
