Program areas at DLF

Education programs:the david lynch foundation's educational program, quiet time, focuses on students in low income urban schools; these students grow up in an oppressive climate of poverty, violence, and fear, limiting their abilities to focus and learn and impacting life outcomes. The quiet time program is a practical, evidence-based approach that has been proven to improve focus, academic performance, and student wellness while reducing stress, absenteeism, suspensions, and negative behaviors. Quiet time provides students with two 15-minute periods of tm each day to help balance their lives and improve their readiness to learn. This schoolwide program complements existing educational strategies by improving the physiological underpinnings of learning and behavior. Research also suggests that teachers and administrators who practice tm experience reduced stress and burnout. Dlf-funded quiet time programs include public and public charter schools in new york, los angeles, chicago, san francisco, and Washington, d.c. documents dlf programs around the world, including schools, military and law enforcement programs, women's programs, prisons, the homeless, and refugees. seeks the most compelling stories of transformation and creates videos that inspire funding, program participation, and new partnerships.
