Smith College Project Coach, Academic Year 2021-2022
Enhancing Current Model Through Social Capital Education and Development
In 2021, Social Capital Builders trained five of Project Coach’s staff on how to incorporate the social capital model into their program. We focused on how social capital can help young people in their transition from youth to adulthood. Then, we worked with the Project Coach team to develop social capital training for their program participants. They invited several program alumni to participate in the training and share their own experiences and successes. Due to pandemic-related challenges, Project Coach was not able to execute a full program for the Spring 2022 semester. Instead, they ran a two-day workshop for five of their rising seniors with social capital as a foundation.
Here are some outcomes reported by the Project Coach team:
