Connected Futures

Connected Futures is a curriculum designed to help students form meaningful connections with supportive, non-parental adults in their lives. From teachers, to coaches, to extended family members, and beyond, these adults are a critical resource for students’ engagement and success. Students learn why mentors might be helpful to them, and are also equipped with skills to actually build and grow their social networks. This program is available through your computer browser.

Connected Futures is based on an intervention called Connected Scholars, which has been shown to help first-generation college students network to gain social capital as they transition into college. Learn more about research related to the Connected Futures curriculum here.
