Project Cornerstone, an initiative of the Silicon Valley YMCA, trains parents, adult relatives and adult friends to lead literature-based classroom discussions for the Asset Building Champions (ABC) program. It addresses important issues including respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors, and refusing to participate in gossip. Volunteers read specially selected books and lead discussions and activities that help teach valuable lessons related to these issues.
Developed by Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, "Growth Mindset" is a concept that helps people understand that their intelligence or talents can be developed, as opposed to a "fixed mindset" which would suppose that one's basic qualities are simply fixed. "Project Mindset" at Huff offers students a series of lessons throughout the year focused on understanding the brain, orienting around a growth mindset, and perseverance for achieving growth.
