Go Succeed FAQ’s
Go What is the Go Succeed program?
Go Succeed is a Youth and Family Development program created by the College Factory that provides college & career coaching and support to its members. The Go Succeed coaches are trained on our program and each coach has the ability to create an individual plan of action that works best for the student they work with. Coaches guide participants through career exploration, budgeting, interview practice, college applications, test prep, and scholarships.
How much time will the coach dedicate to us?
Our coaches have committed to serve at least 3 hours/month. This can happen all at once or be broken up over several sessions in a month. Some coaches may spend more time if they are working on a particular task, and that is dependent on availability.
What are the Eligibility Requirements:
Where will we meet?
Coaches are only allowed to meet with students at the school or in an approved public place. This ensures the safety of both the coach and the student. Families may request coaches meet in a more accessible space, but that request must be approved by the GO Succeed Program Coordinator.
What is required of the parent/guardian?
We want parents to be as active and engaged as possible through this process. Our coaches will help your child develop and implement a post-secondary plan so parent input is very important. Our coaches are a great resource! Feel free to reach out to your coach with any questions you may have.
Is there a cost to participate in the program?
There is no cost to be in Go Succeed. All memberships fees for 2017-2018 have been covered by community sponsors. There are several additional events outside of Go Succeed that may have an added cost if students would like to participate such as scholarship blitzes and college tours, but we work extremely hard to make sure these are low cost (normally only $10-$15).
Who do I contact if I have questions about the program or progress of my student?
You can contact our Program Assistant, Ava Moniker, at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact the guidance counselors at the Career Academy.
