Growth Mindset

Youth & Mentor

Mentors support youth to develop a growth mindset when they offer specific praise that highlights effort. In one-to-one situations, mentors can explore the Brain Toolkit with their young person and use video clips to explore the concept of a growth mindset. (Clips are presented in the Thrive Group Lessons.)

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.
