PATHWAY COACHING

Once enrolled with City of Promise, students in grades K-12 are assigned a coach to support their academic success.

 

In addition to collaborating with teachers and administrators to address academic and behavioral needs, our coaches ensure students are connected to after-school activities, summer programs, and employment opportunities. Coaches plan and chaperone field trips, give kids a ride when they need it, and support parents in navigating paperwork and systems that will lift up the whole family.

SUPPORT IN SCHOOL

Coaches meet up with students at school, sit in on meetings with parents and teachers, and play an advocacy role to encourage children to stay on track through high school graduation.

ACTIVITIES AFTER SCHOOL

In addition to Homework Help offered twice a week by UVA students at Madison House, City of Promise Education Stations are hosted weekly to give kids learning opportunities in the neighborhood:

 

Mondays - Girls Group and High School Dinners

Tuesdays - Youth Club for 7th and 8th Grade

Wednesdays - Garden Activities for K and 1st Grade

Thursdays - Wildrock and PB and J Fund for 2nd-4th Grade

FIELD TRIPS

Exposing youth to the world outside the neighborhood helps them dream big and expands their horizons.

COLLEGE VISITS

A cradle to career pathway would be incomplete without visits to colleges where youth can learn about academic requirements, college majors, and career possibilities awaiting them after high school.
