The People’s Podcast talks Community GRIT with Haze Schepmyer
July 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
What Can You Contribute to your Community’s GRIT?
Ubuntu rejects the notion that any human being can be entirely self-made because no person can exist in isolation (Ngomane, 2019). While some people may argue that an isolated individual can survive, it’s much harder to argue that an isolated individual can thrive! In a community where many youth are growing up with limited access to formal mentors, this Ubuntu quote gives hope that those youth can gain access to informal mentors who are excited to model how they’ve drawn on the strength of other members to navigate obstacles in their own lives. This is what I mean by community GRIT.
Have you ever thought about a GRIT gene that defines your community and its members? Would you jump at the chance to connect with an informal mentor who can help you tap into that gene? Would you jump at the chance to be an informal mentor who can help someone else tap into that gene based on your lived experiences? If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!
During this one-hour conversation, Haze from growmygrit.com will lead participants through a series of activities designed to explore and increase community GRIT! Click here for a sneak peek at Haze’s thoughts on the possibility of a gene and click here for a model of how to define GRIT.
