The term at-risk refers to any set of circumstances that have a cause and effect relationship on the student's success. Students defined as at-risk can be a challenging group of students to work with in the classroom and in a counseling setting. This paper will define students at-risk, discuss factors related to students at-risk, and methods to better reach and work with the student at-risk. While building relationships with students at-risk, the counselor's goal is to improve school success, model positive adult relationships, decrease dropout rates of students at-risk, have a more positive school and classroom climate, and improve graduation rates for students at-risk. This paper will discuss several different possible interventions, approaches, and outcomes to building positive relationships with students at-risk.
