Coach Printer-Friendly Format
The Coach Program recruits, trains and supervises college students in the classrooms of high schools as they help 11th and 12th graders make informed decisions about their future.
Undergraduate and graduate student “Coaches” provide individual support to all students as they think about their goals for the future, develop plans to meet these goals, and work through the logistics to make these plans happen.
This “student-to-student” model helps to bridge the information gap while, at the same time, making post-secondary education a reality.
Kids to College Printer-Friendly Format
Kids to College (K2C) pairs sixth-grade classrooms with colleges and universities in four Massachusetts cities (Boston, Worcester, Springfield, and Lowell) for a six-week early awareness program.
K2C teaches students about careers, the connection between careers and college preparation, courses for being college-ready, academic expectations in higher education, and college life.
This program is supported through a grant from the Sallie Mae Education Fund to the fund’s administrator, the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts (AICUM).
