A Few Words About Youth Coach Global
Youth Coach Global Inc. was founded by International Youth Coach & Speaker, Rob Stringer, BA, BEd, CPC in 2010, and works closely with our sister company to Youth Coach Canada, a registered non-profit organization.
Youth Coach Global helps kids, teens, and young adults meet with success by making professional life coaching services, programs, and resources available to youth aged 11-21 around the world.
Whereas most companies focus on supporting adults, Youth Coach Global's main focus is dedicated to empowering today's youth—teaching them powerful skills to succeed both now and into the future. These skills support several key areas: academic success, youth leadership & entrepreneurship, as well as self-esteem & risk-taking.
Youth Coach Global's mission is simple: to help today's youth lead lives they LOVE by making affordable coaching services available to them--at home, at school, where ever! "It's not about raising super-stars, but rather giving regular kids the skills and support they need to succeed," says YCG's Founder & Professional Coach, Rob Stringer, "Many of today's youth are in serious need of strategies & support to deal with stress, fears, and failures. However, in the past, parents didn't know where to turn."
Stepping up to fill the need, Youth Coach Global offers a variety of support options. Parents can sign their kids up to: work with a certified professional coach and/or complete one of our exciting programs. Parents and other adults can also sign up for programs and evening workshops geared to teach them coaching skills to use at home. Youth Coach Global also works with local schools, District School Boards, Faculties of Education, and youth-focused organizations offering in-school workshops, empowering motivational talks to students, staff, and parents, and more.
