Transition Coach Program

CCA’s Transition Coach Program provides transitional support services to students grades K-12 returning to Syracuse City School District mainstream schools after a long-term out-of-school suspension, placement in a juvenile residential facility, juvenile detention or adult incarceration. The objective is to ensure students returning to mainstream schools make a successful academic and behavioral transition in accordance with the District’s Code of Conduct, Character and Support, and are positive citizens in their communities. The two United Way proposed positions would service TCP eligible 15-20 year olds, separated by gender, whom are returning from a juvenile residential facility, juvenile detention, or adult incarceration.
