Student Questionnaires

Please use these questionnaires to give YBDF information about your program and satisfy your grant-reporting requirements. YBDF needs compelling stories to share with our audience and potential grant-making organizations — to fuel fundraising to sustain our programs for years to come!


Please submit Within 1 Month after each 8, 10, or 12 week session

You may record attendance using the PDF Invoice or using the form below.

YBDF will submit payment upon receipt of a complete invoice and at least one session report from both the instructor and organization representative and, if possible, high quality pictures, videos, or audio clips of participants with photo release forms (if necessary).

Session Report

Information about the program must be provided to YBDF with each invoice, but please feel free to submit a session report more frequently. Organization Representatives, such as guidance counselors or any individuals who regularly engage with participants, offer an invaluable perspective as they are uniquely able to see the impact of the program outside of the class.

Some ideas of what we are looking for:

What did participants say about the program? What impact did the practice have on the participants (attitude, behavior, etc.)? Please provide any anecdotes or testimonials about the background of participants and benefits of the program, such as:

•      Descriptions of participants' lives - home, family, school, etc. and any changes since beginning the program.
•      Participants’ responses to the YBDF program.
•      Participants taking their yoga, mindfulness, or meditation ("YMM") practice off the mat, using the programs tools in their daily lives to manage emotions, challenges, conflicts, etc. 
•      Stories about the lasting influence YBDF programs have had on past participants.
•      View some examples at

Grant Renewal

Apply for sessions between January 1 and June 30 by October 31.

Apply for sessions between July 1 and December 31 by April 30.

If we do not approve a grant renewal request, YBDF may permit the instructor to invoice for the remaining funds from the previously approved grant request, even if they are holding classes beyond the time range specified in the approved renewal application.

If we do approve a grant renewal request, the unused funds from the previously approved grant do not "roll over" — they are not added to the new grant amount. For classes taking place after the grant cycle begins (Jan. 1 or July 1), instructors may only invoice YBDF up to the amount granted by YBDF for the latest grant cycle.

Please email any updated Insurance Documents, CPR Certifications, or Yoga/Mindfulness/Meditation Instruction Certifications to
