The Achievement Coach, leads both group and individual coaching for the student body in College Town. Coaches drive the academic and interpersonal skills development of their students using study room time, school visits, home visits, one-on-one mentoring, and community service. Success in the role is primarily measured by the following outcomes:
- Students are excited about attending Reality Changers every week, evidenced by consistent high attendance at program and events
- Students that are motivated to raise their GPAs to a 3.5 and qualify for UCSD’s Academic Connections
- Students can define goals and utilize the program to access resources to support them in achieving those goals (e.g. academic support, awards and opportunities, etc.)
- Students strive to attend and obtain their grade-level expectation for community service
