For over 25 years, Grit (previously known as Youth at Risk) has been working with young people experiencing disadvantage and living in challenging circumstances, along with the professionals and volunteers who work with them, in communities, schools, prisons and local authorities. We have worked with over 18,000 young people and 20,000 adults in communities across the UK.  

We believe that when you change your thinking, you can change your world. And our programmes are designed to do just that. We work with young people and the adults that support them, to change the way they think so that they can radically alter their outcomes in life.

Time and again, we have seen that our unique combination of intense personal development and coaching allows people to increase their sense of agency (the feeling that they have ownership of their lives); their self-esteem to express and share who they are; their relatedness (the degree to which they feel connected and supported); and, the possibility they see for their future.

These attitudinal and mind-set changes lead to significant and long-lasting behavioural changes that – quite simply – transform people’s lives.
