TARGET AUDIENCE: YOUTH
Angela Duckworth’s research on grit highlights the importance and role that passion and perseverance play in achieving long-term goals. It focuses on the building blocks of attitudes and actions that help students do “the hard thing” and sustain their effort, regardless of obstacles and setbacks they encounter. The formula, Talent + Effort = Skill, goes further to add Skill + Effort = Achievement. This highly interactive experience invites students into activities and challenges that help them gain perspective and tools for long-term achievement in their life context.
