New Frontiers in Learning

UPDATED: May 6, 2019

The mission of New Frontiers in Learning is to provide customized coaching in executive skills for individuals to achieve greater success in life, including academics, career, social, independence, and more. Focusing on executive skills promotes the identification of goal directed behaviors and strategies to achieve self-actualization. We are a support program for middle school, high school, college students and adults of all ability levels and provide services nationally in-person and virtually.

Executive Function Coaching: Focuses on skills such as organization, planning, prioritizing, self-monitoring, goal setting, and time management. Clients utilize one of our regional offices for their sessions, and support is also provided in the field or virtually.

College Transition: Transition supports for clients that have been accepted to college and need guidance transitioning to their specific institution. The curriculum is developed based on students’ individual transition needs and provided through a 1:1 coaching model either in person, virtually, or a combination of the two.

Transition to Adulthood: Goal setting and skill development address job coaching, daily living skills, self-care, social skills, and more.

Career Counseling and Coaching: Career advisement grounded in one’s unique abilities, interests, values, and personality, as well as career coaching to build and revise cover letters and resumes, interview preparation and follow-up, job identification and retention.

Summer/Winter in the City: Students participate daily in social and cultural experiences throughout New York City to learn how to navigate the landscape, plan and initiate activities, live on a budget, and develop interpersonal and social skills. Clients participate in varied academic, executive function, social communication, stress management and leadership lessons.

College Readiness: Clients spend time working on the skills necessary to be college ready, including academic foundations (note-taking, reading comprehension, conducting research), how to study and manage one's time, how to negotiate and utilize testing and classroom accommodations.

Social Scene 2.0: Young adults (21+) focus on advanced social skills and a more sophisticated level of executive functioning skills. Transitioning to independence, creating social connections, and exploring the dating arena are covered.
