Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To help people reach their full potential by improving the way they think about the values, abilities, and knowledge of themselves and others.
The Grit Profile measures a valuable new dimension - the "grit" dimension - that helps colleges admit the best students.
Colleges don't care so much what you know: they are much more interested in how well you can learn and how willing you are to use that ability.
We call that grit. Grit is what we measure and build with the Grit Builder Course."
Completing the course is hard.
Students are used to being hand-fed formulae, facts, and algorithms to solve problems. When they are forced to think in a broader context - including thinking about how they are thinking - they often give up.
Students who give up aren't gritters.
The good news is, even if you're not a gritter now, by completing this course you will, by definition, become one.
The Grit Builder Course is designed primarily for high school juniors.
