Coaching is a collaborative relationship between a coach and a Franklin student, which creates an ongoing practice of personal development. Through discovery and strategic action, effective one-on-one coaching provides the student and the coach with growth and personal and professional development opportunities.
Personal Development Coaching relationships focus primarily on accomplishing your personal and academic goals and succeeding as a Franklin student.
The personal development relationships have proven to be beneficial to both student and coach.

As volunteers, they also bring passion for helping students perform at their full potential.
