kid-grit offers customized retreats for middle school and high school students. Following the kid-grit approach to developing mindful leaders, we use our core curriculum topics — mind and body awareness; community-driven ideologies; and digital- and social- media awareness — to explore a young person’s frame of mind.  Our retreats are comprised of unique workshops and hands-on activities, where students will discover their leadership potential, exploring and nurturing their individual and collaborative strengths and powers. They will identify available resources in their own communities as a means of giving back and building a stronger society. Last, but not least, they will develop resilience and grit on the path to a successful future.

Our programs offer young people the means to disconnect from digital devices, connect to each other instead, have fun, cultivate their creative side — and ultimately develop leadership strategies that can be applied to their day-to-day lives in school, home, and other environments.

Throughout the two- to three-day retreat, students will learn and practice vital life-skills in the areas of:

  • Self-awareness
  • Social awareness
  • Global consciousness
  • Resiliency
  • Developing healthy rituals such as daily exercise, mindful eating and learning how to create positive affirmations
  • Team-building
  • Effective communication
  • Managing new challenges
  • Decision-making
  • Thoughtful risk-taking
  • Cultivating compassion and empathy
  • Discovering a deeper commitment to school and extracurricular activities
