Section 1.2: Inviting Students onto the Coalition Platform

This section will illustrate how to invite students to work with you on the Coalition platform.

If there are students you would like to work with via the Coalition Platform, you don’t have to wait for them to set up an account and invite you to be a Coalition mentor. Instead, you can invite your students onto the Platform and establish a counselor relationship with them.

  1. Log in to your account at

    site address

    Or, if you are already logged in, go to your account Overview

  2. The bottom half of the Overview page gives you a list of tasks.

  4. The student contact invitation form opens. Enter the student’s email address and select your support role from the list. The roles are pretty standard: high school counselor, registrar, teacher, etc. If your role isn’t listed (like neighbor, pastor, coach) select New Relationship to specify.

  5. Click Invite. The system informs you the invitation was sent. If the student already has an account on the Platform, a simple contact request will be sent. If the student doesn’t have an account, the email will invite the student to create an account and you will be created as a contact as soon as the student does so.
  6. You will receive a notification when the student accepts your invitation. The student will also appear on your My Student Contacts list.
