Challenge

We have a huge population of kids who don't go to college, have not finished high school, & are unprepared for the workforce. The research states that college graduates are deficient in leadership skills. The same report categorizes high school students as deficient in professionalism, work ethic, critical thinking & problem solving, teamwork/collaboration, and diversity. Research also shows less than 30% of all MA high school students participated in structured career development opportunities.

Solution

Coaching4Change (C4C) offers a unique program that expands learning opportunities for youth. Our goal is to increase school engagement in low-income school districts to raise the level of academic achievement. The C4C tiered system trains and hires low-performing high school students to coach and tutor elementary and middle school students. While the teen coaches act as mentors by providing social and academic support, our students at every age group develop a sense community and empowerment.

Long-Term Impact

Coaching4Change provides positive role models for teens and younger members of the community. We also provide academic support for all levels of program participants. Research shows that early experience and opportunities for employment has a long-term effect on teens by preparing them to be self-sufficient as adults. Both, increased college exposure and positive engagement within schools have been proven to keep students on track to graduate and matriculate into higher education.
