The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of the character-based guidance of merchants in increasing student resilience. This type of research is a quantitative research with one group pretest-posttest design. The data collection technique is in the form of a resilience scale. The research subjects were 7 students who were taken randomly. The data analysis technique used non-parametric statistics with the Wilcoxon technique. The result of the Wilcoxon test is the value of Z = -2,371 with asymp sid (2-tailed) 0.018 which means that there is a significant difference between the pretest and posttest of the significant level of student resilience between before and after the application of group guidance based on the character of merchants. For further researchers, they can develop a research design with a larger sample, such as a pretest-posttest control group design.
