All In For Youth: Success Coaches

More Than Snacks

Success Coaches are the face of All In for Youth in your school! We are here to help you solve problems, get connected to resources, and provide support to figure out how you can be successful in getting through high school.

What Do Success Coaches Do?

Success Coaches do LOTS of different things! Some of our activities include: 

  • Helping students identify and address barriers to being successful in school 
  • Connecting students to career and post-secondary opportunities 
  • Working with your school team to make sure you stay on track to complete school 
  • Providing outreach or one-off referrals to students who need them 
  • Providing positive relationships to help students work through any issues they might be experiencing 
  • Helping to build student independence by encouraging them to learn and use new skills 
  • Addressing basic needs (ie. when you need a snack, and more!)

Who Do Success Coaches Work With?

All AIFY candidates for support must be motivated to complete school! 

  • Students who need extra support and resources 
  • Students who are at risk of dropping out 
  • Students who have dropped out and returned to school 
  • Any student who asks for support!

How Can I Get In Touch With A Success Coach?

The Success Coach at Crescent Heights High School is Shauna O’Connor. You can find her in Guidance Office most days, and reach her via phone or text at (403)966-1853 during school hours. 

Come by, have a snack, a chat, and be heard!

What Makes a Good All In for Youth Candidate?

Student Profile

  • Motivated – desire to make positive changes and be successful 
  • Has identifiable and removable barriers to their school success 
  • Would benefit from a positive adult/mentor 
  • Can require short-term or long-term support 
  • Needs to be connected with resources or referrals outside of the school

Barriers the student might face, but not limited to:

  • Addiction concerns – Success Coaches can connect students to appropriate resources or take students to appointments. 
  • Financial Need – clothing, food, hygiene products, and other basic needs 
  • Physical and Mental Health Concerns  – ongoing concerns that are interferring with school engagement. 
  • Challenging  living  situations  –  Success  Coaches  can  assist  in  problem  solving,  providing information around housing options, and refer to housing resources. 
  • Lack of positive adult support –   Success Coaches are available to build relationships with students who may need a “friendly face” to check in with at school.
