HOW WE DO IT

TEACHERS AS
CHANGE AGENTS

Teachers know that their students are capable of great achievement. We find, train, and support excellent teachers already working in low-income public high schools to coach their students toward college enrollment and success. These teachers, known as Program Directors, work for three years with conviction, tenacity, and a fierce determination to give their students a fair chance at college graduation.

Well, it’s more than a chance. Their efforts are working.

PROVIDED
WITH SUPPORT

Program Directors don’t go at it alone. We equip them with content and technology, and then train them to coach cohorts of students, known as Fellows, toward college acceptance and completion. The cohort meets daily during the school week in a credit-bearing course through their junior and senior years. When Fellows are accepted into college, the support moves to intense one-on-one, remote coaching by the same Program Director with the ultimate goal of college persistence and success.

ARE GETTING
RESULTS

In communities where students typically have a 9% chance of graduating from college, 82% of OneGoal Fellows are enrolling in college and 78% are persisting in college or have graduated.

This is what is possible when you pair determined students with committed teachers and execute a unique program that’s making a difference in lives.

This is what is possible with OneGoal.
