We train those working with at-risk teens, foster youth and orphans in the Academic Life Coaching program; a tool kit to help teens build social-emotional intelligence. At the end of the training program, as a certified coach, you will be fully equipped to help youth from hard places develop the SEL skills (social-emotional learning) of self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, decision-making and relationship building. This is an International Coaching Federation approved coach training curriculum and satisfies the 60 coach specific training hours required for those wanting to pursue ICF certification.
Who should consider this training?
Anyone working with youth coming from a hard place. The program is beneficial for adults seeking ongoing professional development, those wanting to enhance their personal skills in working with teens, those parenting foster and adopted kids, and those interested in a life coaching career.
The Youth Advocate Coaching Program was created through the partnership of Waypoint Life Coaching and Academic Life Coaching. These two organizations have come together seeking to help some of the most conflicted youth. Both programs dedicate their time and energy to developing ways in which struggling teens can learn life skills to determine the direction of their own future. The Youth Advocate Coaching program accomplishes this mission by training coaches to help mentor and guide youth and teens.
