THE RESILIENCE PROJECT combines personal storytelling, events, programs, and academic skills coaching to motivate and support students as they experience the setbacks that are a normal part of a rigorous education. We help students learn from failure and hope to instill a sense of belonging and bravery. Our goal is to help change the perception of failure from something to be avoided at all costs, to something that has meaning, purpose, and value.
If you would like to talk with us about rejection, failure, setbacks, or definitions of success, please contact Adina Glickman, director of The Resilience Project at firstname.lastname@example.org
