Basecamp Group Coaching

Elevate Youth Solutions designs interventions that socially and emotionally stabilize students, helping them grow in core life skills, problem-solving, and critical thinking. One of these intervention models is called Basecamp. Basecamp is a coaching group facilitated on middle and high school campuses during the regular school day. Each group serves up to 10 students and are guided by a team of two Wellness Coaches.

These groups can be adapted for use in community centers, youth outreach camps, religious organizations, group homes and juvenile detention facilities.

HOW IT WORKS

Basecamp groups begin with rapport and trust building activities followed by the completing a student 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 10 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, swag items, and either a backpack, hoodie, or similar value participation award at the end of the group process.

At the end of each 12-15 week session, a second student self-assessment is completed and then combined with the Wellness Coach’s notes to create a dashboard for school counselors and administrators. The dashboard shows individual student progress and can render results 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.
