Heather Bryant and Momentous Institute: Developing Social Emotional Health

David |

Heather Bryant is the Director of Innovation and Impact for Momentous Institute. She has worked in the education field for 27 years. Heather graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and from the University of North Texas with a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

Since 1920, Momentous Institute (formerly Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers) has been powered by the Salesmanship Club of Dallas, a service organization of more than 600 business and community leaders committed to transforming kids’ lives. Our nationally acclaimed lab school opened in 1997 at our Oak Cliff campus. In 2006, a second campus opened in northwest Dallas to expand our therapeutic services for children in need.

As a leading provider of therapeutic and education services, Momentous Institute impacts 6,000 kids and family members each year. We tailor our approach to the specific needs of each child and their family situation and focus on building and repairing social-emotional health — developing kids who become self-regulated, good communicators, problem-solvers, empathetic, grateful, gritty and optimistic.
