A scaffolded growth mindset curriculum and staff training at Masa

This grant will support the development of a growth-mindset curriculum for MASA’s participants, who are Mexican and Latino immigrant youth in the South Bronx.

Masa wants to improve its after-school program, MAP, which uses a growth mindset approach to providing homework help and academic tutoring to students in grades K–7. As Masa’s current programming is not differentiated for students’ age and knowledge, the organization has found that its efforts do not tap into the full potential of the approach to develop in participants greater confidence in their ability to learn and perform at or above expectations. To address this, Masa proposes to develop a scaffolded, grade-level specific curriculum for building a growth mindset in participants, as well as to train staff and volunteers to teach the new curriculum.
