Did you know that the character trait grit is a stronger predictor of postsecondary success than a student’s SAT score, IQ or high school GPA? Equally important, if young people have a growth mindset, rather than a fixed mindset, they could become more motivated, more willing to exert effort and more likely to achieve success. Join us for a conversation on grit and a growth mindset and how the combination could inform the work you do to help young people succeed now and in the future.
Join us for this experience as we:
•understand how emotional resilience can improve the college and career readiness of youth;
•learn more about these important concepts and the impact they can have;
•engage in an open dialogue among attendees;
•share practical ideas for cultivating more grit and growth mindsets among the youth you serve.
