All Kinds of News for August 08, 2018
Foundations Asheville, a young adult transition community for young men ages 18-24, is currently preparing new students for the upcoming fall semester through individualized coaching.
At Foundations, students have several options to continue their education including attending local community college AB Tech. For students attending AB Tech for the fall semester, the three weeks between the end of summer term and the beginning of fall term provides an opportunity to prepare for their next chapter.
“We coach each student through this process based on their individual needs and goals,” comments Natalie Bryenton, Director of Education and Career Development at Foundations Asheville. “For new students, this time of year provides a chance to gain functional living skills that are involved in learning how to send transcripts, advocating for their interests, and determining their major. It invites creativity and helps them get excited for the new school year. The enrollment process can be an empowering experience.”
Foundations Asheville students come from a variety of academic backgrounds. Some have dropped out of school in the past, while others are currently on academic withdrawal from a four-year university and are able to accrue credits during their time at Foundations.
“At Foundations, we help students explore their strengths and feel prepared to face the challenges they’ve dealt with in the past,” says Bryenton. “Students are able to get back to their goals and rewrite their narrative about school. A lot of the young men at Foundations have had different relationships to school and they all work alongside each other, challenging and driving one another. It’s a very rewarding experience for them”
