GRIND SMART AT A GLANCE

Grind Smart believes the future of our community is bound to the success of our youth. Back in 2018, our leadership realized vulnerable youth populations in our city did not have equitable access to resources to ensure bright outcomes in their futures. We needed to do our part to ensure all our city youth had a leg up, and that is why we decided to launch the Grind Smart Youth Leadership Initiative. We are proud to continue building on our work as a Non-Profit Youth Leadership Organization in the innovative City of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
