College Coach Seeks Deserving Community Groups for Free Counseling

College Coach has always maintained a commitment to community service and to partnering with our corporate clients in their community outreach efforts.  If you follow College Coach's Insider blog, you may have read about Alex Bickford and Marj Southworth's latest trip to the Light House maternity home for young mothers in Kansas City or the work of Dawn Marvino, Mary Sue Youn, Lisa Albro, and Sally Ganga with Big Brothers Big Sisters at American Express in New York City. 

College Coach has recently formalized our commitment to community outreach, however, with the formation of the Community Support Committee.

Helping Individuals Realize Educational Aspirations

The mission of the Community Support Committee is to deliver superior college counseling programs to non-profit organizations and community groups whose constituents could not otherwise afford these services.  Through the donated time of College Coach educators, the Community Support Committee is able to offer programming in the areas of college admissions and college finance.  Programming can consist of group presentations and/or individual counseling, and we can customize our services to meet your organization's needs.  All in-kind donations of college counseling to deserving community groups further College Coach's goal of helping individuals realize their educational aspirations.

IBM and the White Plains Football Association

The Community Support Committee undertook its first official program in July, partnering with IBM and the White Plains Football Association to provide expertise and guidance on the college admissions process to student-athletes and their parents in White Plains, NY.  Many of these athletes will be the first members of their families to attend college, and the assistance provided by College Coach's Sally Ganga was invaluable to these families as they navigate a confusing and sometimes intimidating college application process for the first time.

An Open Call for New Community Partnerships

The College Coach Community Support Committee, consisting of Beth Feinberg Keenan, Marj Southworth, Kyra Tyler, Kerri Haseman, and Stephanie Porter, is currently looking for new community groups to partner with.  Does your company currently work with a worthy non-profit organization whose members could benefit from a program on college admissions or financial aid?  Do you or your employees volunteer for a group that could use college counseling assistance?  If so, please contact College Coach at [email protected]. College Coach exists to turn college dreams into reality, and the Community Support Committee is here to help!
