Description

Students enter our program in Sophomore year of high school and work with skilled staff members to develop college knowledge, establish appropriate goals, and build actionable plans of action. Through academic development, identity work, crisis response, socio-emotional learning, supplemental experiences, and community-building, our hope is that students become equipped to have opportunities to attend a college that meets their financial and personal aspirations.

To this end, the service that Preparation Coaches provide are a key component of College Bound’s programming. They work directly with students, supporting them in a hybrid advisor-mentor role as they pursue high school completion and the intricacies of applying and being accepted to college. Core to College Bound’s mission and approach is strong relationships, which makes our high-touch coaching model integral to our success. Coaches focus on a multitude of areas with students, utilizing the power of genuine relationships to work through the specific barriers of being a first-generation, low-income student in the Saint Louis area. Coaches intervene in the development of strong academic habits and mindsets, collect data to track students’ academic profiles, and support students in developing habits of healthy decision-making. Our work is equally challenging and rewarding, and throughout their year of service AmeriCorps Members will gain practical experience along with receiving professional development and training from industry professionals. They will also work closely with their supervisor to prepare for the next step in their professional and educational careers.
