Help Boone County students finish their degrees
Eliminate barriers to academic achievement
The Graduation Coach Program works inside Boone County high schools and helps students move toward graduation while addressing short-term needs and long-term goals.
Our Graduation Coach helps students manage stress, improve emotional well-being, provide social support, resolve conflict, address interpersonal relationships, and remove barriers that might impact a student’s success. Our traditional adult mentoring program helps reinforce these goals.
A safe, trusted adult to talk to
Connections to a broader network
College visits and apprenticeship connections
Online and in-person support
Goal setting and accountability
Career counseling and guidance
Personalized attention that lasts a lifetime
Every student matters
Lori Schroeder, Graduation Coach Director, mentors numerous students at Lebanon High School. Other area high schools participate. Our Graduation Coaching Program helps students find their passion and plan for a bright future, whether in secondary education or joining a trade after graduation.
Mentors can work with multiple students, but every student meets one-to-one with their mentors for personal attention.
Over 150 students at area high schools have finished their degrees. Over half of those students move on to college, and an even higher percentage enter the workforce, military, or vocational program.
Mentors help reinforce the work our schools are doing and form strong friendships with their mentees that often last long after graduation day.
We’ve got your back if you’ve got theirs
No one should feel overlooked
You can help area students finish a degree, enter the workforce, and prepare for a bright future. Mentorship provides accountability for you and young people and can be done online and off to meet everyone’s needs. Because sometimes all we need is to know someone’s counting on us.
