About Academy Coaching
Are you looking for an opportunity to invest in college students? Do you want to share your expertise and business insight with some of our best and brightest students? Then consider becoming a Scholars Academy Coach.
As a Coach, you will have the opportunity to engage with two high-achieving members of the CBA Scholars Academy once a month. The agenda is simple: create a space for business professionals to share their wisdom with students, and give students an opportunity to ask questions of business professionals.
We ask Coaches to commit to one academic year, which includes one kick-off in September and then monthly meetings with your two mentees through April. The meetings may be over lunch or coffee, at your office, in Mammel Hall, or wherever you think would be a conducive place for quality discussion. The meetings may be at times convenient for the three of you.
The Scholars are required to submit monthly reflections about their meetings with their Coaches, so consistency from the mentors is extremely imperative for the success of this program.
The Scholars Academy focuses on students’ strengths through the assessment and ongoing immersion in Gallup Strengths. The initial kick-off event in September 26 will focus on Strengths. The Academy will provide a code to Coaches who have not completed the Gallup Strengths assessment.
As a Coach, you may also work with the Scholars Academy Director, Bethany Hughes, to set up a company visit for the CBA Scholars. As high-achieving students, the Scholars are proactively looking for internship opportunities and carefully considering their career choices. By being a Coach and sponsoring a company visit, you are gaining access to some of our most sought-after students.
HOW DO I APPLY?
The application to be an Academy Coach will open in summer 2018 for the 2018-2019 academic year.
