Help students move from Grief to G.R.I.T.

Our schools and students need G.R.I.T. now more than ever.

A Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Inspired Program designed by licensed mental health professionals and tenured teachers in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the United States.

These past several years have seen more grief and loss than ever. Our students need help and Hearts of Hope offers the program to help to address this growing need.

WHAT IS THE G.R.I.T (Grief Resilience Inspires Triumph) PROGRAM?

  • GRIEF – Education about the physical/emotional/behavioral aspects of grief.
  • RESILIENCE – SEL Exercise – students are taught through demonstration techniques to learn and practice resilience techniques.
  • INSPIRES – SEL Exercise – students learn to “create hope” for themselves and for others through our Hearts of Hope Healing Art Program.
  • TRIUMPH – SEL Exercise – students have all G.R.I.T. components wrapped up on this concluding exercise – delivering HOPE first-hand and seeing the impact of their efforts first-hand.
