Goldie's MindUP initiative is a program aimed at helping train teachers and schools to have the skills to create a learning environment which supports children's mental fitness. MindUP is a part of the larger Goldie Hawn Foundation, a not-for-profit organization set up by the actress in 2003.

MindUP shared the lovely images of Goldie visiting the school children along with the caption: "There’s nothing we love more than visiting our #MindUP schools! Our team + founder @goldiehawn were lucky to spend the day [at schools] @psis295q and @bleekerpride yesterday in Queens."

"Thank you @uftny @nycschools @nycschoolsd25 @d29shines for such an amazing day," the caption finished.

Goldie, who with her long-term partner Kurt Russell is a proud parent and grandparent, shared MindUP's post on her Instagram story along with a love hearts sticker.

Since its inception, MindUP – which is a global initiative – has trained over 150,000 teachers and served millions of children across 12 countries.
