Community Connections

The Ripple Effect

Since we incorporated in 2015 and obtained our 501(c)(3) in 2016, Awaken Pittsburgh has developed our proprietary Mindful Connections curricula, piloted our programs and are now delivering them to educational and therapeutic institutions as well as in the workplace. We’re grateful for the amazing feedback we’ve received (see some of our favorite testimonials below) and are proud to share a few highlights of our offerings:
