Who We Are: The Center for Wellness and Achievement in Education (CWAE) is a San Francisco Bay Area-based non-profit organization. Since 2007 we have dedicated ourselves to introducing our flagship program, Quiet Time, to the underserved school communities of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Mission and Purpose: Our mission is to optimize educational performance, reduce violence, stress, and substance abuse, and improve the psychological wellness of students, faculty, and administrators by strengthening the underlying neurophysiology of perception, learning and behavior.
Population Served: CWAE serves more than 2,000 youth and 400 teachers and administrators in San Francisco, Oakland, and Marin. Among the youth we serve, 98% are of color and 62% live in low-income homes.
