Empowering college students to ignite change for the next generation

It’s all about relationships

Coaching4Change (C4C) was founded on the belief that we can transform students’ school experience through relationships. We know that a lot of schools are having staffing issues that are not going away soon.ย 

The C4C near-peer mentoring model has a dual impact:

  • Additional support to students in schools

  • Schools develop a more diverse and experienced educator pipeline

What we do

Our Opportunity

We recruit, train, and hire college mentors who are struggling to determine what they want to do with their major. We give them an opportunity to tutor, role model, and support elementary, middle school, and high school students facing social and academic challenges. The result is our college mentors develop job skills, explore a career in education, and persist in college.

Our Approach

Using proven, researched based techniques, our college mentors are given the tools they need to provide academic aid, support behavioral interventions, and help school staff engage with families.ย  Resulting in improved academics, school attendance, and behavior.
