Alternative Roadmap works to redefine the way credit deficient and at-risk students learn in a classroom. We are a 32 week, 32 hour program that partners directly with schools to provide a life coaching, soft skills, and career preparation program. Our model incorporates a socratic classroom which is highlighted by our three pillars (Mindset, Vision and Action) to build a practical foundation for high school students. The classes are lead by two of our trained, age proxemic Navigators, under the supervision of an experienced teacher or administrator, which results in a change of pace class for students. The class can be offered independently or incorporated into an active class.
Mindset Our first building block in our Trifecta. Without a clear mindset, you cannot execute what you need for long-term success. Everyone is entitled to believe whatever they want. Most young people are confused and insecure, which leads to a clouded mind. With the prevalence of strong social norms it can be difficult to know what to believe in. We empower our students by having them understand their own mindset and that they are the only ones that can control it. Your mindset is your reality.
Action This is our last and most important part of our Trifecta. Without action, there is no result. The single largest problem whenever anyone wants to make a change is the lack of action. We teach our students how to take baby steps when taking action. It is scary at times to take action because of the risk involved. Risk and failure are values that we teach our Roadmappers to understand and overcome.

Alternative Roadmap has been incredible for student engagement. This class has been able to get many of our less engaging students to participate. The energy that this program brings on a daily basis has not only changed the outlook of our students, but it has changed the energy of the school.
With lessons in risk assessment, time management, and positive association, Alternative Roadmap helped the students of our dropout prevention program find new ways to see responsibility to reach their short and long term goals.
