Loving Kindness Peaceful Youth is an international nonprofit organization that aims to inspire and nurture loving kindness among young people. We believe that in daily life, loving kindness can be a powerful force in shaping actions and behaviors.
Loving kindness is also known as unconditional friendliness, or the wish for ourselves and others to be happy. It comes from the Sanskrit word metta. Just as mindfulness (which comes from the sanskrit sati ) has become an everyday concept, Loving Kindness Peaceful Youth hopes that loving kindness will become a familiar word we understand easily and use every day.

Public Information Meeting: FREEPORT FIELDS and TRAILS PROJECT
A proposed field and trails project on Hunter Road
serving the greater Freeport community
that features multi-use athletic fields and trails and supports
more than 15 outdoor recreational activities --
It will benefit the kids of the future, the RSU athletic programs,
local merchants and businesses, and our entire community
Learn more about it: Tuesday, February 15, 7 – 8:30pm, Freeport Community Center, 53 Depot Street
Freeport Fields and Trails is a proposed community project that will bring extensive athletic fields, trails and recreation opportunities to residents of Freeport, young and old alike.
This unique plan combines 37 acres of new land to 260 acres of town owned land, including Hedgehog Mountain, Pownal Road Athletic Fields and the Seacoast United Athletic Field Development. The Freeport Field and Trails project will provide 4 new athletic fields suitable for soccer, field hockey, lacrosse or rugby, 3 new ball fields for little league baseball and softball, 10 – 20 kilometers of hiking/biking/Nordic trails once connected to the Hedgehog Mountain trail system, 1 sledding hill, and a recreational lodge. Freeport residents of all ages will have the outdoor recreational facility we have long desired.
Freeport Fields and Trails will also serve to alleviate some of the overcrowding, overuse and overlapping of our Middle School and High School fields while providing trails for the RSU’s cross country running and Nordic teams.
The Freeport Fields and Trails is a vital investment in our community. It will provide healthy alternatives for our children and their families while preserving open space. Additionally, it will have the added benefit of serving the customers and patrons of Freeport’s merchants, hotels and restaurants. The Fields and Trails will add to Freeport’s tourism base with athletic tournaments and events and the extensive trail systems will complete Freeport’s reputation as an outdoor destination as well as a shopping destination.
