Basecamp Group Coaching

Elevate Youth Solutions works effectively to socially and emotionally stabilize students and help them grow in core life skills, problem-solving, and critical thinking. We do this through Basecamp coaching groups that take place on middle and high school campuses during the regular school day. Our model serves up to 12 students per group and are facilitated by two mentor-coaches.

HOW IT WORKS

Basecamp groups begin with students completing a self-reported assessment where they identify their current satisfaction levels across 4 areas including Connections, Intellect, Fitness, and Emotions. Weekly group meetings are organized with up to 12 students. One or two students are directly coached each week while their peers observe the process. The coaches lead engagement activities, provide coaching interactions, and guide peer advising opportunities.

Students receive Basecamp journals, Elevate swag items, and either a backpack, hoodie, or similar value participation award at the end of the group process.

At the end of each 12-14 week session, the student’s self-assessment is combined with the coach’s notes to create a report for school counselors and administrators. These reports show individual student progress and can render an administrator’s report showing aggregate improvement scores from single or multiple groups.

Elevated Results

I thought Elevate was going to be boring, but I still enjoyed it and was satisfied with what they did and how they did it. They were always nice calm and listened to what we had to say. The program was amazing I feel it helped me improve upon myself.
