Who We Are:

Inspired by the tragic loss of young lives, the National Resilience Institute began as a grassroots community resiliency project. Its mission was to stop the loss of life and to find proven solutions to build more resilient kids, families, and communities.

What unfolded was a five-year quest that took us across the country and around the globe in search of evidence-based skills and tools that empower people to prepare for, adapt to, and grow through traumatic disruptions with strength.

We invite you to join us on our journey as we continue our mission to research, educate, and advocate for a more resilient world.


What We Do:

  • Education: We provide evidence-informed programs that translate the language of science into simple and practical tools that grow human resilience.
  • Research: We conduct research studies and compile research to develop models that advance the field of human resilience.
  • Advocacy: We convene and facilitate multi-disciplinary collaborations to create innovative solutions that meet today’s most pressing challenges.

Why We Do It:

The National Resilience Institute wants individuals and communities to feel prepared and empowered to respond to these challenges with resilience and strength.

Through our collaborative research, education, and advocacy, we innovate solutions that grow human resilience. It is our hope to put skills and tools into the hands of those who need it most to create a world in which everyone can thrive.
