Meeting Students Where They Are in Their Learning Journey
An overview of what Find Your Grind’s Curricula Options has to offer (and what’s new: Spanish!!)
We’re on a mission to meet students wherever they are in their learning journey, whether it’s on a path toward being high school valedictorian, toward a life of traveling, or to the skate park (or all three!). We want to see students succeed in finding their own path that meets their life and career goals (even if they haven’t thought that far ahead yet). We are here to support them! To meet more students where they are, we’ve expanded our languages to include Spanish! This means students can read Find Your Grind’s content in both English and Spanish and all videos have English and Spanish caption options.
Students can now be confident in their comprehension of the content rather than spending time trying to pay attention to vocabulary and sentence structure. We prioritize learning outcomes and believe it’s critical to design learning experiences that are functional and user-friendly. We focus on how these experiences work and why we’re creating them in the first place.
As we continue to become more accessible, we focus on our Find Your Grind outcomes-based learning key principles and remember our inclusiveness to all students:

How does this framework benefit students?
Spanish-speaking students can now benefit from Find Your Grind’s curriculum more than ever. Find Your Grind’s curriculum is inclusive. Spanish-speaking and multilingual students have the opportunity to understand the lifestyle-first mindset, discover and develop their skills and passions, and match those to the post-high school pathway that truly aligns with their goals. How else does this framework benefit students?
