Clarifications on Project Coach Program
August 8, 2013
In a story published Aug. 7 on the Wabash College website, the relationship between programs developing and sponsoring the STEP-UP and Project Coach Programs was inaccurate.
STEP-UP® and Coach is not part of or related to Project Coach developed at Smith College. STEP-UP® and Coach was developed by The Salisbury Foundation and “STEP-UP®” is a registered trademark owned by The Salisbury Foundation.
Step-Up and Coach seeks to provide inner-city young men with an opportunity to explore their talents and interests related to coaching, all while learning about college life.
Activities during the program included a weekend training Academy, a focus on coaching at the Montgomery County Boys and Girls Club, daily coach critiquing sessions and personal development classes like discussion of Wabash College’s Gentleman’s Rule and Track and Field Coach Clyde Morgan’s Brother to Brother program. The basics of college preparedness were also part of the program.
