What is ENGAGE Michigan?
Michigan’s Department of Education has partnered with Graduation Alliance to provide an extra layer of support for K-12 students and their families to boost school engagement and academic success during the
school year.

Students who choose to participate in the program will be assigned an Academic Success Coach who will answer questions, connect them with resources, and develop a plan to help the student stay on track and
engaged with their schooling.

How does it work?
Coaches reach out to students by phone, email, text message, and more to provide support, such as:
• Guidance on technical and teacher access
• Encouragement and motivation to help students stay on track with their studies
• Organization and study tips
• Educational resources and exercises to help strengthen reading and math skills
• Referrals to local nonprofit organizations that can provide social-emotional support

What does it cost?
ENGAGE Michigan is state-funded and completely free to students.

“I couldn’t ask for better dedication and support for my daughter. Our Academic Success Coach is a blessing and has incredible energy. I love how she got my daughter out of her shell and talking more (and
finding her voice to speak up more). Thanks to our coach and this program, my daughter loves school and learning again. This program is the best thing that could ever happen for my daughter and me!”
