GRIT Resilience Training Application
By completing this training, you will be trained to be a GRIT "coach." As a GRIT coach, you can help spread support and education to your community members. A coach’s role is to support and motivate. In the sports world, an athlete struggling to improve a skill or hone his/her overall performance, would turn to a coach. When that athlete needs assistance for an injury, he/she would turn to a doctor. In this similar mindset, the GRIT coaches provide education and support at an individual, group, and community level and are not medical or mental health professionals.
This free 5-hour training provides information and skills on general and COVID-19 stress, resilience, disaster recovery, skills, support and small interventions to enable a GRIT Coach to educate, support and motivate individuals and communities to be as resilient as they can be in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent challenges.
GRIT Coaches provide short-term resilience support and referrals and never replace professional help. To sign up for being a coach please complete the following form and we will reach out to schedule you for a virtual training program.
