Coatesville High School Alumni Association (CHSAA) wants to provide an opportunity for CASD students to begin looking at life after Coatesville. Students will have the chance to learn from those who came before them and continued on in certain careers or educational paths through the Raider Mentorship Program. This program also offers alumni a great way to give back to the Coatesville community by offering their time, talent, and effort.
The Raider Mentorship Program focuses on college and vocational choices for CASD students, by enlighten and empower Coatesville High School students to explore authentic, real-world opportunities for leadership, hands-on research, and career discovery through the lens of Alumni and local businesses. Students will be helped to develop communication skills, as well as a vocation, career, and college awareness in order to make better life-long decisions and contributions. Other alumni can also seek help from Alumni Mentors if they are interested in making vocation, career, or college changes.
