Coaching For Change, Inc
Coaching4Change (C4C) is a nonprofit (501c3) organization that bridges the achievement and opportunity gap found in lowincome communities. C4C partners with middle schools to work with at-risk, inner city youth who need additional support academically or socially. Coaching4Change has been nationally recognized for its program model which provides highquality after school learning opportunities to youth in highneed communities. C4C uses a unique model to build a pathway from middle school to college for students who are disengaged from school as early as 6th grade. We train and deploy college and high school students to provide support to middle school students participating in our after school programs. Our crossage mentoring model provides structured after school sports leagues and academic enrichment opportunities for our partnering schools. The goal is for middle school students to improve their school attendance, behavior, math and writing skills, enabling them to stay on track to graduate from high school and pursue meaning post-secondary opportunities.
