A huge congratulations to Hannah Atherton and educator Tori Sophia on receiving our Find Your Grind Scholarship at the Jostens National Renaissance Conference in Arizona! Hannah’s story is the story of “stronger by circumstances”. Not only has she risen above all odds to become president of her class, honor roll student, and most importantly- a business entrepreneur creating apparel and ideas for the future! We hooked up Bureau High School and their teacher Victoria with a $2500 scholarship for nominating her friend and student. The importance of celebrating others should always be top of mind. #findyourgrind
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.
Find Your Grind and the Ryan Sheckler Foundation have teamed up for this years annual charity golf tournament! This year, FYG will be part of the #HelicopterBallDrop to kick off an epic day of golf, giving the opportunity for someone to win $5,000! Another $5,000 will go towards the charity, supporting causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children and injured sports athletes, inspiring them to “Be The Change”!
FYG was stoked to team up with ESPN to host this years 2017 X Games in Minnesota! The Dingo hosted all three days of the event and had a chance to interview some of the world’s top athletes. We’re excited for the future of FYG and X Games!
