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.
