Request a Coach

Updated 04/26/17: Thank you for your interest in GRIT Coaching. Currently, our program is at full capacity for this quarter. Peer coach requests received will be placed on our waitlist in the order in which they are received. Waitlisted students will be matched with a coach for Fall quarter. Please let us know if you have any questions.

The Bruin Resource Center’s (BRC) GRIT Program is a peer-to-peer life coaching program. GRIT stands for guidance, resilience, integrity, and transformation.  These are principles that we aim to develop in our participants through the peer coaching process. Peer Coaches will provide one-on-one coaching to students to help them reach their academic, social and personal goals. Some topic areas of focus include time-management, goal setting, positive well-being, healthy relationships, and managing stress.

How does the program work?

After submitting this form, you will hear from your coach via email or phone within one week. Coaches are UCLA students who have been trained on how to best support other UCLA students. 

Your coach will help you with the following: 

  • 1-on-1 guidance through meetings and follow-ups
  • A supportive listening space
  • Effective strategies for improving well-being
  • Tools for academic success and time management 
  • Resource referral
  • Help getting plugged into campus 
  • Educational opportunities

If you are interested in receiving support from a peer coach, please submit your request through the form at the top of page! Students can sign up for coaching at any time during the academic year. If you have any questions, please contact us at: grit@saonet.ucla.edu.


"My participation was extremely valuable because the appointments were all during convenient times. I received helpful information in each of the weekly sessions. I was able to reduce a lot of stress and I learned how to manage my time. Also, developed a healthy friendship with my coach! The hour-long meeting every week was always worth my time because I was able to reflect on the past week with my coach and get extremely helpful advice from my coach on how to better plan for the upcoming week. I was able to change my outlook on all the areas in the "wheel" of life. I also became very aware of my feelings, strengths, and weaknesses."
