With schools around the country closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, teachers are scrambling to teach online classes, students are muddling through a new way to learn, and parents are worried their children will fall behind. For students who struggle in school during the best of times, one can only imagine the frustration they’re facing as they quickly try to familiarize themselves with new connectivity technologies and a novel way of learning from home.

This is a time of stress for many of us – students and adults alike.

Having an Edge coach can only help. Edge coaches are not coaching English or math. Instead, they work on whatever issues the student or parent is concerned about. Edge coaches are specially trained to provide for youth what adults would receive from life or executive coaches.

The Edge Foundation has 15 years’ experience helping young people, especially those who struggle and non-traditional learners — youth and young adults with executive function challenges, which can arise from childhood trauma (ACEs), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or other causes.

We provide one-to-one coaching to help these students realize their full potential. Our Edge coaches coach virtually, using online Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc., regardless of where the student or parent is located – at work, in school or at home.

What We’re Doing

We offer Edge coaches for as many students and/or parents as we can manage, given our coach availability and funding resources.

What Will It Cost?

We are offering an Edge Coach on a sliding scale, including for FREE during this period. For those with financial resources, we ask you to pay all or a portion based upon your ability to pay.
