Growth Mindset

Group Lessons

Step-It-Up-2-Thrive lessons on growth mindset mirror the successful approach of Dr. Carol Dweck’s team at Stanford University to shift youth to a growth mindset. In a Step-It-Up-2-Thrive summer school program, for students at risk of drop-out, youth rated the mindset and brain development content as the number one value of the summer curriculum.

A growth mindset can give courage to embrace one's own goals and dreams... And more importantly, it offers a way to work toward making them real.
