Introducing FYG@Home (FREE Resources for Educators, Students and Families)
Same Mission. Heightened Focus.
Our world and the world of work is constantly changing and Find Your Grind is always here to be your guide. We’re proud to work with educators and students around the world. For all of us, priorities and focus shifted in new and unexpected ways with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re still here to help.
Making Access Easier.
As many educators, families, and students find themselves at home for an indefinite period of time, we have more #MisfitEducators than ever before. That’s why we want to remind people what they can do with Find Your Grind at home TODAY for free. Find Your Grind is great for middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and ANYONE exploring new opportunities.
Try These Simple Self-Discovery and Reflection Activities at Home.
- Experience + Reflection = Insights. Introduction to journaling to process, synthesize and reveal new ideas.

- Rapid Reflection. Struggling with how to journal? Don’t overthink it. Use this lightning round approach and your gut reactions to see ideas and connections in a new way.

Let the Life You Live Guide the Work You Do
Self-discovery, self-reflection and exploring industries and jobs are still meaningful and engaging activities at a time when so many jobs are impacted, evolving or, worse, being put on hold or eliminated. As we all learn about and pursue what is important to us and what we excel at, Find Your Grind always believes that your future is what you want to make it. There’s not one linear path and choosing a career isn’t one and done.As many educators, families, and students find themselves at home for an indefinite period of time, we have more #MisfitEducators than ever before.
