Academy of Awesome

The Academy of Awesome is a series of free classes currently offered through the After Hours program that gives students an opportunity to explore a gift or passion.  Taught by volunteer professionals in the community, courses in guitar, film, computer programming, dance, art, are helping students try out new areas of interest with no cost to participate.  

83% of our students participating in this program say that Catalyst has given them a chance to explore and develop in areas they never have had a chance to before.

Community Service

No.  We do not give out community service hours for dressing up in a photo booth but we do offer them in other creative ways.  In fact, your first 3 community service hours are earned just by completing a self assessment and hanging out with us!  After that we will match your gifts, passions and availability with dozens of different opportunities around the Catalyst Collective community to earn hours.

Success coaching = a modern form of mentoring + accountability and encouragement that is designed around an students personal, academic and/or spiritual areas of desired achievement.  

In partnership with his Catalyst Collective team of leaders, Joe Elliott and his team offer success coaching for those who want to get serious about going further faster. Success is about movement. Statues do not get much accomplished in life.  Reaching your goals takes strategy, focus, resiliency, learning to take the right risks and having someone in your corner to help get it done.  

The first step is the Catalyst Purpose Project.  After completing this short project, students will have a mental map they can use as we help them take the next steps on their unique journey.
