Life coaching is not counseling or mentoring. It is asking thought provoking questions that will bring new, forward thinking perspectives. Life coaching is all about letting an individual decide how they can make a better life for themselves. We discuss core values and beliefs to get each Roadmapper to choose how they want to live their life. We use ICF coaching methodologies with our Roadmappers and Navigators.
Christian and Elliot met working together at a tech company selling accounting software. They were both aspiring entrepreneurs attempting to make a difference. After countless hours of collaboration they began on a journey to write a book for underprivileged individuals. After completing their book they knew they had to find students to work with. They began to recruit high school students from local basketball gyms to come to their small groups they hosted outside at a local Starbucks. Their group grew for 1 to 3 to 20 in about 2 months. The initial group of students were all Somali immigrants or 1st generation citizens. Next, they made a website and were contacted by a school district all the way in Pomona, CA. The school district offered them the opportunity to pilot their program at a high school in their district. They then decided to incorporate and create “The Alternative Roadmap” and make it a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Christian and Elliot left their full-time jobs in Denver, CO and moved to Southern California 30 days after the offer. They were in Southern California for 15 months until they were offered the opportunity to move back to Denver and work with 5 Jefferson County High Schools.
