We focus our efforts on the marginalized, the economically disadvantaged, and the under-served. Founded in 1975, we have provided resilience training and programs to thousands of adults and youth from over 50 countries. *Personal Resilience: The missing component to help the under-served thrive.* Personal Resilience is the capacity to 'bounce back' and thrive despite significant adversity. Personal Resilience is not an innate talent or quality. Rather, it’s the result of a set of skills and supports that can be learned, cultivated, and harnessed in all of us. The research is clear: personal resilience leads to better mental and physical health, educational attainment, career success, and life satisfaction. We believe that cultivating personal resilience is a foundational step in helping people to thrive—one which is often missing in development programs to improve well-being and reduce poverty worldwide. *Innovative Training. Rigorous Research. Measurable results.* Our resilience programs have served thousands of at-risk adults and youth in low-income communities in the US and developing countries, significantly improving mental health, school performance, and social skills and relationships. Projects are underway to establish evidence of impact of our resilience programs on physical health and academic achievement. Our services ‘toolkit’ is drawn from the latest research, integrating evidence from the fields of positive psychology, social-emotional learning, attitudinal healing, emotional intelligence, and restorative practice. Working in partnership with academics from leading institutions such as UCSF Global Health Sciences and the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Resiliency Project, all CorStone programs are independently evaluated using rigorous quantitative and qualitative research.
