If you want to guide a student, help them envision their future as a college student, and realize their college dreams, coaching may be for you. Each coach will be paired with a student and will meet with him/her monthly to discuss academic progress and to coach him/her on reaching goals. Meetings may be for ice cream or can be more elaborate, like a trip to a museum or college campus.

Coaches are assigned to students in high school, ideally when the student is a freshman or sophomore. Coaches of juniors and seniors focus on college-related activities - visiting campuses, working on applications, identifying scholarships, etc. Coaches of younger students begin by working on envisioning future plans and skills for success, such as time management or staying organizing.

There are optional coaches' meetings where coaches can share what's working and what's challenging in their relationships. For late high schoolers there are meetings with college counselors an workshops to guide students, coaches and parents through the college process.
