PelotonU is an innovative social enterprise tackling the college completion crisis for working adults because students who would benefit most from a college degree have the hardest time graduating. When life is full with work and family working adults have a 16% chance, at best, of earning a bachelor’s. For these same students, we built a path that offers them an 80% chance of graduating.
Our coaching program is our flagship program and works to combat shame and build shame resilience in our students. This philosophy is the backbone of our work and the central way we achieve our mission and keep our promises to students. It’s also a best-in-class coaching model that is now being emulated by more than a dozen other organizations like PelotonU – called “hybrid colleges” – around the country. For seven years, we’ve supported our students in achieving unheard-of results.
As the Director of Coaching, you will be building on this legacy to both maintain (or improve!) outcomes for students and our student culture of hope and belonging.. You’ll also be looking for new ways to continue improving the program, developing your team, codifying our best practices, and refining our model. Ultimately, the DOC owns the emotional weight of the coaching program and serves as a north star for always putting students first.
