YOUTH COACH PROGRAM
Education can liberate the mind and the soul; especially when it inspires and motivates individuals.
Sometimes, adolescents may need additional support in the form of a youth coach, to inspire, to guide, to nurture and to help teenagers achieve their full potential.
WHAT IS A YOUTH COACH?
Depending on the client’s learning and emotional/social profile and goals, we nurture the one on one relationship with the adolescent.
We first identify the teenager’s strengths and then we plan to offer guidance regarding challenges, personal, academic and professional goals, relationship issues, self-confidence and self-esteem difficulties.
In Learning and Wellness our Youth Coaches are primarily individuals and professionals who serve the code of ethics. In addition, their expertise and background spans the following fields: educational policy, relationship and communication skills, study and academic support, career goals and organizational skills, psychological and physical well-being.
The initial meeting is a 90 minutes session with the parents and the adolescent and 60 minutes with the adolescent alone (for families).
The intake will shape the Youth Coach Plan (YCP) and help establish the client’s goals. This plan will include weekly meetings, targets and the client’s profile.
Through the L+W youth coach program we aim to provide a trusting friend, a caring professional, an “outside the box thinker” and someone who will challenge the individual.
Specifically a youth coach can:
• Help teenagers facing personal and academic challenges get back on track
• Encourage a better work ethic
• Help young people deal with difficult or embarrassing issues
• Discover potential and set goals to reach it
• Help improve family dynamic
