Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed trying to juggle school, work and your personal life? Get help from Journey to Success!
Journey to Success is a program at your college that helps you improve your study habits and organize your life so that you can achieve your academic and career goals.
We team you with a success coach who volunteers his or her time to help you. The success coach will connect you to the college services or information you need to succeed. All of the success coaches are DCCCD employees and have received training on how to be an effective coach. The program is absolutely free to you.

What Else Can a Success Coach Do for Me?
Success coaches will provide you with support and encouragement when you need it. They also may assist you with the following:
Success coaches will not replace your instructors or the free tutoring that is available at your college. If you have challenges with a course, your instructors should always be your first point of contact.
How Do I Request a Success Coach?
Contact the Journey to Success coordinator at your college. Tell the coordinator that you want a success coach. The coordinator will assign a success coach to contact you by email or telephone. Note: Not all of our colleges allow students to request a success coach. Some colleges only accept referrals from your professor.
Make sure your official records in eConnect have up-to-date phone numbers and email addresses so your success coach will be able to reach you. (You can check and update your contact information by logging in to your eConnect account and clicking on the “Change Email Address” and “Update Phone Numbers” links under My Personal Information.)
