Find Your Grind Collective Digital Art Space

Come inside the Find Your Grind Collective digital art space at The Bay. We wanted to open up a space that centered around our philanthropy’s core strategy of showing youth what’s possible for their futures. The Find Your Grind Collective is centered on self discovery, life skills, and career exploration. Every month there will be a new curated learning experience in this building. Whether that’s photography, building a motorcycle, or 3D printing. Real world experiences are key. The curriculum we have developed in conjunction with this will help implement our strategy across the country to hundreds of thousands of students and kids to help them ultimately FIND THEIR GRIND.

We wanted to send a huge thank you to our partners in Ethika for joining our scholarship program this year on the #FindYourGrind Tour and helping turn students ambitions and passions into a reality.

 

FindYourGrind.com Launching in September

This September we will launch FindYourGrind.Com– a premiere self discovery tool for high school students and teachers to explore quality career content and answer the question of “what happens next” after high school. We are changing the way we teach career exploration to our youth, providing educators with an entire database of lifestyles, careers, mentorships, and scholarship options to utilize in teaching students about the “real word”. FYG is designed to ease the burden experienced by educators, all the while requiring students to take charge of their own learning through research and exploration activities. With the FYG platform, students become their own teachers and teachers become managers of that process. This dynamic experience is meant not just for assisting students, but to also aide educators to Find Your Grind.
