Elliot Zettas - The Alternative Roadmap High School Program

The Alternative Roadmap – The Alternative Roadmap: Jeffco Public Schools pilot

Date grant awarded: 01/24/2018

The Alternative Roadmap project provides relatable coaching programs to low-income 16- to 24-year olds in Denver to improve self-efficacy, well-being, and career preparation for upward socioeconomic mobility. This project was created in August of 2016 by Elliot Zettas and Christian Carmody. The project team realized the lack of motivation and positive direction that many at risk seniors are facing. The project is set to pilot this opportunity with three high schools in Denver, CO to provide a unique life coaching program to support these students. The coaching program is 16 weeks long and will service around 100 at risk seniors to help guide them to be successful graduates.
