Why bring Student Futures to your organization?
Universities and colleges around the United States have academic coaching programs to help students deal with the challenges that arise while attending school. They have implemented these programs because so many students are unprepared for the challenges they experience in college and university such as the stress that comes with an increased workload. When students are unprepared they experience pressure which can lead to more serious issues such as anxiety and depression, which are major factors that affect student success. Research has found that is is critical now more than ever that students’ social emotional learning skills are developed in order for them to be successful. By equipping your teachers with the resources and techniques they need to help students be prepared for their future you help students get ahead of the game. When an educator combines their teaching skills with coaching they have the ability to create unstoppable students.
