The program focuses on a student’s self-knowledge by incorporating a hybrid curriculum that includes a coaching and community involvement project into each student’s personal growth and leadership development plan. The Latino/a Student Cultural Center (LSCC) connects each student with a peer coach and an alumni coach, in addition to giving them the opportunity to engage in a community involvement project to further develop the workshop concepts as they learn them in real time.
The two distinctive coaching relationships will help students during their journey of personal and leadership growth as well as offer guidance during their service projects. What makes these relationships unique are the connections the coaches have to Northeastern, whether as current students or alum, they share similar experiences because their personal stories’ resonate with that of the program participant.
