1:1 Coaching in Small Group Communities
Small group coaching sessions are designed to help students who have been through one of our curriculums to keep moving forward in their life planning. Unlike our curriculum-based programs, these communities don't have a theme or come with course materials. Instead, these groups have short check-in meetings a few times each month focused on educating students to be proactive, decisive, and creative in planning for the future, in a warm and safe space with a mentor and just a few other students.
The mentor challenges students to meaningfully "try on" the specific careers and life paths that pique their interests, while the small group community shows them how other students are navigating the same process.
We focus on developing three big skills in these sessions: being proactive, being decisive, and being creative. For students who feel directionless, we challenge them to find next steps in exploring a future path they will love and we coach them to take proactive steps to find their own passion. For students who know what they want, we challenge them to pursue their interests, be proactive about paving a smooth path to get there, and keep an open mind in case things change along the way. For all students, we have created a safe space for them to share their successes and anxieties in confidential small group coaching sessions, with the goal of building a stronger sense of direction and a greater feeling of camaraderie and confidence as they make their own unique plans for the future.
