It is the mission of HeartWise Community Learning Center to innovate alternative methods of education, providing and promoting a continuum of care that strengthens  body, mind and spirit for at-risk youth grades 7-12 within a larger network of alternative education programs.

HeartWise Community Center provides structure for nontraditional students to build inner strength as they learn to transform conflict and become mindful, responsible and empowered adults. We integrate core curriculum with yoga and creative arts to inspire significant change in the lives of our students. The essential goal of HeartWise is to create a setting in which the tools to build and sustain inner-peace are made available and practiced.

HeartWise is a partner and funded by Network Charter School in Eugene Oregon, 4J School District. The alternative charter school program is an interdependent network of small non-profits that provide alternative education for grades 7-12.
