Once enrolled with City of Promise, students in grades 5-12 are assigned a coach to support their academic success.
IIn 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.
Coaches connect with students at school and in the neighborhood to play an advocacy and mentoring role for youth.
POSITIVE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
Coaches seek out opportunities to develop a growth mindset in students and expose them to dynamic people and places.
