Section 1.2: Inviting Students to Join MyCoalition

This section will illustrate how to invite students to work with you using MyCoalition tools.

If there are students you would like to work with using the MyCoalition online tools, 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 to join MyCoalition and establish a counselor relationship with them.

  1. Log in to your account at mycoalition.org.

    site address

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

    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 a MyCoalition account, 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.
