Coaching Collegiate Success


Transitioning into a college environment can be overwhelming. There are multiple adjustments that need to be navigated in order to be successful. Adjustments such as learning to live away from home; managing increased freedom; handling social pressures; navigating time management issues; and coping with academic stress.
Succeed U is a coaching program designed to prepare students for a successful transition into a college environment thus giving them a competitive edge over their peers. Through a thorough needs assessment, record reviews and parental interviews, a tailored program of targeted coaching interventions is developed to provide the tools necessary for success. Each week the student receives a one on one coaching session, as well as resources that can be used to strengthen skills that are being developed. Some of the topics include: time management, peer issues, transitioning from home, drugs and alcohol, dating, budgeting, study habits, values and goals, problem solving, dealing with moods, healthy habits and coping skills.
