At 14 GO Centers in the Fort Worth ISD, full-time College and Career Readiness Coaches provided by United Way help students learn about career options and how to apply for college admission, scholarships and financial aid. They provide one-on-one mentoring to the most at-risk students.

In 2012, the median wage for college graduates was more than twice that of high school dropouts and more than one-and-a-half times higher than that of high school graduates.

That’s why United Way has created GO Centers in a number of targeted middle schools in Tarrant County to help students transition to high school with relative ease. In the GO Centers, the college and career readiness learning opportunities help sixth, seventh and eighth grade students understand the importance of completing high school in order to attend college or join the workforce. Children identified as most at-risk by using a variety of criteria, such as grades, attendance, and behavior, are connected to Career Coaches. The coaches develop relationships with them, their families, and school administration. The coaches also help students set their sights beyond high school graduation so that they are internally motivated to finish school though a variety of ways, like field trips to universities and businesses.
