GRIT & GROWTH
for GRADUATION

A 6-week, virtual group for college students who want to better navigate the stress and anxiety that comes with balancing school and other commitments.

WHY JOIN?

College can be a time of excitement, growth and difficulty. Unfortunately, we are not given a road map at orientation about how to navigate stress, anxiety, and balancing this stage in life. Join us for a 6-week, virtual group to build your toolbox to have grit and growth for graduation.

Academics, Activities, and Adulting? That's a lot to balance!

I am a Latina woman who is a first-generation college graduate with a passion to create a space for those in their college journey to grow and gain support. I, too have been where you are and hope to help you navigate the many challenges of college life.
