About Find Your Grind
It’s time to stop asking kids what they want to be when they grow up, and instead, show them the possibilities of who they can be. Unconventional careers and alternative lifestyles are paving the roadmap for the 21st century.
Find Your Grind's mission is simple:
Expose, enlighten, and educate students and teachers to the possibilities of tomorrow.
This platform puts self-discovery, career exploration, and network building at your fingertips. Our model encourages youth to think critically about the life they want to lead and the things they are most passionate about. From there, we show you what is possible.
Stay tuned for monthly student challenges, scholarship opportunities and giveaways as we connect schools to professionals, entrepreneurs, innovators, and mentors! For now, educators can check out our curriculum:
Find Your Grind has non-profit roots. Nick Gross and Natasha Barritt started the foundation in 2015 to empower youth to find passion and purpose. In creating Los Angeles-based programs, events, and experiential learning opportunities, we saw an incredible need to show youth what was possible.
Find Your Grind has now been propelled into the education space: writing curriculum, creating live events, and launching our widely accessible online platform.
The Find Your Grind experience pushes youth to learn about themselves and be as prepared as possible for their future. We’re doing this by changing the way career exploration is taught: providing relevant education on lifestyles, careers, mentorships, and scholarship opportunities.
On the Road
We just finished a nationwide tour that ran from September 2017 through April 2018. The tour inspired students to make positive choices and encouraged them to pursue passions and leave a positive legacy. We met with more than 150,000 students representing 2,000 high schools from over 40 states!
Next year, look forward to an even bigger Find Your Grind tour.
