Design Your Future: Life & Organizational Skills for Teens




"What young people need, and are rarely encouraged to take, is time. Time to investigate fields that interest them. Time to find leaders in those fields and discover for themselves up-and-coming jobs that will fit them. And when do young people have the most time? In high school." - Carol Christen

Adolescence is a transformative phase filled with dreams, aspirations, and boundless potential. Yet, it is also a time of uncertainty, self-doubt, academic pressures, and challenging social dynamics, leaving many teenagers in need of guidance and inspiration. Our Life & Organizational Skills Coaching for Teens empowers teens to harness their strengths, values, explore career paths, and build essential life skills. Rooted in resilience, independence, and self-efficacy, this program fosters a sense of purpose, enabling teenagers to carve out their unique space in the world.


What to Expect:

Our Teen Coaching Program offers practical, engaging, and relevant sessions that lead to self-discovery and personal growth.
