Target Audience



It is easy for adolescents, because their lives are full of constant change, to feel like any conflict, challenge, or criticism makes them a failure. However, these are actually opportunities to grow and learn, about oneself and others. They are opportunities to self-reflect, challenge your own assumptions and knowledge, expand your knowledge and skill sets, gain a broader understanding of different perspectives, and develop yourself on an individual level and within a relationship—friends, family, roommates, significant others, professional, and so on. Adapting a growth mindset during adolescence will prepare teens well for college and the professional world ahead of them. The purpose of this program is to educate students on the benefits of conflict, the value of using a growth mindset, and helping prepare students to adapt a growth mindset by allowing them time to practice shifting statements from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
