OST Program Jump Start & Custom Coaching

The very best know they need a Coach! Can you think of even one professional sports team, filled with elite athletes, that does not have a coach?

We want you all to be successful in working with children, helping them achieve the maximum results. That's where we come in.

With more than 15 years experience in OST programs, and mountains of data, we know what works! We know what will help your students get results.

Let us put that to work for you.

We begin with our Jump Start training program for new programs or new directors, or existing programs with data. This includes all of the essentials needed to get off to a great start and the details to get results. This one or two day training is done on-site and provides the director with understanding on how to make the most of the academic, social/emotional, and family components of any OST program.

Jump Start is an intensive training process designed to focus the 21st CCLC program on a united purpose around the Goals and Objectives of the program. Custom Coaching is a similar and more customized process that can include an on-site visit.  Both Jump Start and Coaching work together to achieve the common and identifiable goals.


To know and understand the purpose and intent of the Out of School-Time program and how to maximize the results the program at your school or institution for the program year.


  • Establish the desired attendance rate for the 21st CCLC program based on the school population and intended target population impact
