Cultivating Aspiration in Youth: Building a Grit and Growth Mindset to Support Ongoing Success
Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Randolph County YWC
All youth workers, parents, community leaders, youth ministers, educators, counselors and others who work to impact the well-being of youth and families are welcome to attend this event.
Cultivating Aspiration in Youth: Building a Grit and Growth Mindset to Support Success
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. What could these concepts offer to you and the youth you serve? Hope! 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. During this lunch presentation, participants will: • learn more about these important concepts and the impact they can have; • engage in an open dialogue among attendees; and • share practical ideas for cultivating more grit and growth mindsets among the youth you serve.
