THE RESILIENCE CENTER
Resilience for Middle and High School programs help students identify and develop their abilities and unique talents, work toward goals that are important to them, and learn good decision-making skills. Gear Up Birmingham students discover different ways of keeping things in perspective and practicing optimism. They learn how they can depend on themselves and others can depend on them, leading to self-confidence. Ultimately, GUB students learn to appreciate themselves as unique, irreplaceable, and precious.
