The yoga program at Ferris School for Boys started as a volunteer mission to bring yoga and mindfulness to undeserved populations through the non-profit organization Empowered Community.

With the guidance of Chief Judge Kuhn and Johnny Gillespie, Founder of Empowered Yoga, the once a week volunteer mission, with Charlene A. Sams as Lead Instructor, expanded to serving the facility to three times a week six months later.
Charlene A. Sams now leads the program at four other juvenile centers on the Ferris campus, contracted by the State of Delaware. The yoga program exposes the youth to healthy practices and tools to help them begin to identify habitual patterns and behaviors. They discover parts of themselves that have been buried under traumas, like peace, calm, stillness, and mental clarity”. Charlene A. Sams serves on the board of directors for Yoga service council Empowered Community and runs her own yoga business at Posh-yoga.com
