An extension of FutureProfits, AchieveAble surrounds youth navigating the transition from high school to college with 1:1 coaching, financial education, academic advising, a supportive team experience and more.
The transition out of high school is an ideal intervention point for under-resourced students. Support, coaching and life skills are needed to ensure that young people embark on a trajectory toward success during this critical juncture. Based on our experience delivering a proven cohort-based economic stability program, Able Works launched AchieveAble in 2019. AchieveAble is a 24-month program for young adults moving from high school to community college to completing a Certificate, Associate’s Degree, or transferring to a 4-year institution.
- Persist in and complete a certificate, a degree, or transfer to a four-year college; or be on track to transfer to a four-year college within a year.
- Successfully reach personal and relational well-being, financial management and career readiness.
What the students say
“As a first-generation college student, AchieveAble has been the help I need to navigate college. The educational counseling and guidance has been instrumental in understanding what classes I needed to fulfill transfer requirements and exactly how the transfer process works.”
“Having a community of people who encourage me to succeed has boosted my confidence to finish college.”
The goal of the AchieveAble program is that you have equal access to opportunity so you can achieve the life you want to live as you embark on your next steps beyond high school.
With this 2-year program, we work with you so that you can begin to see your own potential and develop a vision for your life that is informed by your strengths, assets, and interests. We provide an individualized plan as you navigate community college or vocational training with the goal of obtaining a certificate or transferring to a four-year college or university.
