What We Do

Edge Foundation coaching and coach training build
and scale students’ executive functioning skills–such as time management, organization, sustained attention and self-awareness–that extend far beyond school to overall success in life.

Who We Serve

We make our services available to all communities, including at-risk students who may be homeless, financially disadvantaged, in foster care, in the justice system, or in school. Our goal is to provide executive function success for those communities most impacted by learning challenges.

Founder’s Story

Edge Foundation’s founder had two children with ADHD, and was also a successful corporate leader who had used personal coaches. He found coaches for his children and they were the most effective intervention for managing their executive function deficits. He then wanted to make effective coaching available to all people with similar issues. The result is Edge Foundation, with a research-based model with a uniquely successful impact on the lives of coaches.
