Get GRIT empowers kids with the knowledge and skills to maintain a healthy mind and positive well-being.

Get GRIT teaches children how to:

  • Manage their emotions,

  • Enjoy healthy and positive relationships,

  • Develop a growth mindset, 

  • Be resilient,

  • Persistent,

  • Optimistic,

  • Tackle life's challenges with grit and

  • Reach their true potential.  

The word ‘grit’ is often used to describe resilience, perseverance and determination.  Get GRIT aims to develop grit and much more. GRIT is an acronym for Getting Along, Building Resilience, Identifying Emotions and Taking Responsibility. 

What Does a Kid with GRIT look like?

  • Kids with GRIT have a positive attitude and a growth mindset. They believe they can do anything they set their minds to.

  • Kids with GRIT never give up.  They believe that challenges will make them smarter and they believe that mistakes are proof that they are trying. 

  • Kids with GRIT are persistent and resilient.  They dream big and work hard towards making those dreams come true. 

  • Kids with GRIT know that they are the boss of their thoughts and their feelings.  They manage their anger, frustrations and worries and bounce back from difficulties. 

  • Kids with GRIT catch negative I Can’t thoughts that stop them enjoying their day and change them into positive I Can thoughts.

  • Kids with GRIT maintain friendships by sharing, taking turns, and being honest and trustworthy- they don’t play to win the game but to win friendships. 

  • Finally, kids with GRIT know how to stand up for themselves and are confident, courageous and brave.

We can help your child if they are experiencing:

  • Anxiety

  • Difficulties understanding and managing emotions

  • Low self-esteem and confidence

  • Negative self-talk

  • Fixed mindset

  • Difficulties with social skills

  • Difficulties making and keeping friends

  • Dealing with grief, loss or trauma (including parent separation)

  • Low self-efficacy

'My son recently completed the Get GRIT program and he enjoyed it and found it very worthwhile. He has been able to use the skills and concepts learnt in the sessions and apply it in real-life, day to day situations. The weekly emails and activity book allowed me to understand what was being covered and how sessions were being facilitated. I'm so pleased I enrolled my son in the Get GRIT program, especially now as he is about to start high school'.
