Invest in your teen's future. Help them enhance their motivation, performance, and promote goal-striving to create a clear pathway for their future!
What is Skills for Success?
'Skills for Success' is a program for young people (aged 11-17) run by an accredited Youth Coach designed to enhance motivation, performance, and promote goal-striving.
Through this program, your young person will gain confidence in themselves, become motivated to be their best, and create a clear pathway for their future!
How It Works
Over 10 hours of facilitated coaching:
1) Life & Career Coaching - helps youth find the inner resources and tools to better manage themselves, arming them with the skills to find their own path through life, school, and career. They will learn about their personality types, complete a life wheel (looking at what areas are going well and what needs some attention), and create an action plan to achieve their goals.
2) My School Success - where young people take control of their learning success by evaluating what is going well in their studies, what could be improved, and learning strategies to take their performance to the next level. We will create a timetable and set goals and an action plan.
3) Leadership & Peer Coaching - here we assume that your teen is already a leader ready to create positive change where they see it necessary. They will learn how to lift up others, learn problem-solving and active-listening techniques to bring the best out of others, and be a peer coach and leader!
What Can Your Teen Expect To Gain From The Program?
Using the ‘Coaching Young People For Success’ program, which is based on ‘Positive Psychology’ and ‘Hope Theory’ evidence-based methodologies, ‘Skills for Success’ will help your young person to develop:
Self-awareness and confidence about who they are
Get a clear understanding of the path they want to follow
Create an action plan with goals on how to achieve it
Further develop their leadership knowledge and capabilities

WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE SAY
"My 2 friends and I recently did a workshop with Gen, and it was really good. We did a whole bunch of activities, including a lot of goal setting, which made us really think about our future, and what we want to be when we are older. I recently got a job at McDonald's, and I would like to thank Gen for doing this workshop for us, as it helped me greatly."
