Success is not final.

Failure is not fatal,

It is the courage to continue that counts. 

- Winston Churchill 

 

Today’s teenagers are experiencing unprecedented levels of mental health issues, anxiety and stress.  

 

grit2 is a Downers Grove-based 501(c)3 that connects our community with resources to help support our teens.  We provide local educational opportunities focused on raising resilient teens that flourish in today's world.

 

Through speakers, small group conversation circles, and this website, parents and teens are able to engage on a variety of topics including mindful parenting, anxiety and depression, parent/teen communication and more. Together, we hope to connect area parents and their teens with the support they need to create the life they want.
