Help 40 Inner City DC Youth Explore Career Options

by Coaching for College Program, Inc.

This year we had our class of 2006 graduate high school.  All 13 of the students graduated and will be attending college or vocational programs in the fall.  Colleges that the kids will be attending include Delaware State University, Howard University, Trinity University, Bard College, Virginia State University, and Prince Georges Community College.  In addition, many of the kids earned awards such as Student of the Year and Top 10 Graduates.

"We are very proud of our students. I have seen them grow since 7th grade and the challenges they have overcome and the growth they have made since is remarkable. I have no doubt that they will be successful in the next step of their educational career," stated Nisha Sachdev, former Executive Director and Board Member.

Coaching for College would like to thank all of the supporters who have helped the kids come this far. Below are pictures of their 7th grade graduation and now high school graduation.

The 2006-2007 incoming Coaching for College cohort is on its way to college. The past semester the students have put in time working together to motivate each other to apply to colleges and scholarships throughout the country.  Some of the colleges and universities include Auburn University, University of California-Davis, Harvard University, and Howard University. The students are reaching high and have dedicated the past 10 Saturday mornings to receiving intensive college application assistance and support.

As the winter comes to and end and we enter spring, they are now preparing to enter college. 100% of the students have been accepted into college and we are working to finalize the schools they will be attending along with applying for scholarships.

The kids are excited about the next steps with one stating "I never thought I would get this far, and now I am excited to start my next adventure in college."

We would like to congratulate the class of 2012 and we look forward to providing everyone with the outcome of their hard work!

Coaching for College's 2006 class has left for college.  We are excited to continue to support the students through their college years - with students attending schools nationally - from Virgina Tech to Kentucky State.

Parents, students, and alumni gathered in late August to prepare the students with last minute college tips and say our goodbyes!

Congrats to the Coaching for College class of 2006 and high school graduates of the class of 2011!!!!
