Life Coaching Network

Ths is a one on one conversation for college students looking for a listening ear and advice from an individual who is further down the road of life.  We do our best to connect gifts and experiences of our Coaches to the unique challenges and the paths each student is traveling.

Adopt a Student

We are a network of families and college students who have been paired up to share life together.  Our host families love the energy college students bring into their homes, while the students love experiencing family life as a break from campus life.  Families simply invite students into normal life events whether that is a meal, a ball game or anything else.  This network has brought much joy to both the families and students who have participated.
