The Academic Coach Training Workshop represents the integration of evidence-based practices, contemporary coaching modalities, and life design frameworks, to provide a student-centered approach for use by educational support practitioners. It responds to the need for systemic approaches that demonstrate effectiveness, reduce costs, and provide data-driven systems to work with at-risk, high-need, and at-promise youth in high school completion, college access, and retention and graduation programs. Evidence suggests that academic coaching is in alignment with project strategies that demonstrate a high degree of success in achieving program specific measures. 

This training workshop provides theory, models, and techniques to be an effective, successful, game-changing Life Coach. While designed for those who “serve” in academic settings, it is appropriate for those who work in youth programs, career development initiatives, and leadership development programs. This robust program model proceeds through a five-step methodology that includes: 1) comprehensive Assessment, 2) establish Agenda, 3) create Alignment, 4) initiate Action, and 5) monitor Achievement.
