Welcome to all of our first-year students, and welcome back to returning students! If you’re looking to focus on your holistic well-being and personal development this year, join GRIT! Housed within the UCLA Bruin Resource Center (BRC), our program is committed to enhancing students’ UCLA experiences through one-on-one peer coaching.
GRIT stands for guidance, resilience, integrity, and transformation. It is through these four core values that guide our individualized work with UCLA students, and particularly those who identify as current/former foster youth, undocumented, parents, collegiate recovery, transfers, veterans/military-connected, first-generation, international, and LGBTQIA+.** Despite the adverse, intersectional challenges these student communities face, we acknowledge their wisdom, diverse experiences, and ability to transform their lives through holistic development and growth.
Both undergraduate and graduate students can can enroll at any time during to receive one-on-one support from trained peer coaches. Topics of focus during individualized coaching sessions include stress/time management, effective communication skills, meditation/mindfulness, cultural humility, goal setting, comprehensive campus resource referrals and much more! Our goal is to empower students to discover their true thriving potential and ultimately give back to the greater UCLA campus community. Explore our site for more info!
**You do not need to identify with any of these communities to receive services from our program.**
