GROW is a resilience and character training program created to equip non-profit organizations, NGO’s, and places of worship around the world with necessary tools for strengthening their target communities.
People who are resilient are able to stay strong under pressure. They can get back on their feet after the storms of life. They are overcomers, problem solvers, and oftentimes become leaders. They suffer less from depression and, overall, they enjoy better mental health. They have learned to transform pain into inner strength.
Our goal is to lift well-being and help people have a better life, no matter what their circumstances are. The ability to respond to life with resilience is not only possible--it’s even a learnable skill. So, we decided to find a way to teach resilience to anyone who needs and wants to learn about it, regardless of reading ability or fluency in a specific language.
Our curriculum is a spiritually based character and resilience-training program that is built on evidence based practices from positive psychology. Lessons are based around Bible stories and are designed to be engaging and interactive.
The program is taught by fun-loving leaders who have a strong positive relationship with God and who are role models for both character and resilience. It is structured into 24 weekly group sessions lasting 90 minutes to 2 hours.
Our mission is to provide spiritually based resilience training programs that build character and well-being in children and adults.
Our vision is a world in which children and adults everywhere have the spiritual and emotional tools they need to build strong character and a life of resilience.
As academics and people of strong personal faith, we are interested in piloting research to find out what really works to create resilience and strong character. At GROW, we follow several important steps for development and implementation of our curriculum
