Fall Semester 2009 Update

Kids at Career Building Workshop
Kids at Career Building Workshop

Coaching for College has completed a successful fall semester of Saturday mentoring sessions and monthly career building workshops. Special events included a Wizards game, a Capitals game, and performances and discussion with a local jazz pianist. Coaching for College has also teamed with George Washington University to provide weekly health and wellness sessions for female students enrolled in the Coaching for College program. In October Coaching for College celebrated 10 years of supporting students and encouraging success through academic achievement. Our two most impactful speakers at the event were Melondie Jackson and Jalesa Steward, two Coaching for College alumna currently in college. Click below to see a video of Jalesa with her coach, Karen Evans. As we start the Spring 2010 semester, Coaching for College is working to identify and fund summer opportunities for our students that will keep kids engaged while inspiring their future career goals.
