Grace & Grit

Curriculum

The Grace & Grit Curriculum is an all-inclusive program designed to help school counselors, homeschool educators and group leaders inspire confidence in the girls they lead.

We've expanded our boxed lessons into an all-inclusive curriculum!



Our curriculum is designed to help you lead girls through any of the 10 themes. Each lesson includes a Facilitator's Guide packed with expanded stories and additional information to help you prepare. We've also outlined discussion questions and tips to keep the girls engaged along the way.
