Post by Cyndy When I was younger and single-er, I had one desperate desire: to get swept off my feet at the Latin dance clubs. Oh, to be wrapped in the arms of some modern Rico Suave; to be steered around the dance floor like—like some—like some helpless, delicate female who needs someone else to […]
Post by Cyndy I am a veteran high school teacher. I know how to interact with teens. Duh. Why would I possibly need training in how to life coach ‘em? Oh, ye of little knowledge. As a teacher, I plan ahead for my lessons. As a coach, planning ahead is a really bad plan. In […]

I had the great pleasure of studying with Leah Mazzola at the Youth Coaching Institute last year. The course curriculum is extremely thorough and inclusive, and very well-paced, so that by the end, you actually feel competent to begin coaching yourself. The course included a lot of hands-on experience via practice coaching with other participants along with helpful, relevant feedback on our developing skills. Leah’s depth of knowledge of coaching and psychology is extensive, and her feedback was always on-target, compassionate, and encouraging. As I got to know her, I became more and more impressed with her expertise and commitment. Because of her own life journey, she truly wants to help improve the lives of young people who may have no other access to caring guidance. She doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks it, and I find her a true source of inspiration. My life is better for taking this course and for being able to learn from Leah.

As someone with a diverse medical background, I derived substantial value in supplementing my learning in the theories and evidence-based applications of life coaching. In my case, the potential for enhanced health outcomes amongst the at-risk/high-risk youth population through professionally applied life coaching skills is a significant opportunity. Completing the YCI program has without a doubt validated my position that life coaching skills should be integrated within not only medical education, but all higher education. Irregardless of who you are, where you come from, or where you’re going – well taught and well applied life coaching skills have the potential to transform the way you exist in the world. With that said, I would encourage anyone who is deeply committed and invested in profoundly serving others to consider the YCI as a complement to their personal and professional development.
Cyndy Drew Etler, M.Ed
I came to my training at YCI with a master’s degree in secondary education. I came with fifteen years’ experience working with teens. Four short weeks into the training, I have tripled my knowledge. Where previously I had good book-knowledge and great instincts, I now have a rock-solid, research-based set of strategies to implement. I know exactly how to help teens to learn about and help themselves. Leah Mazzola, and the Youth Coaching Institute, are the real deal. If you want A to Z training in science-based teen life coaching—training that’s delivered with love—you can stop your search right here.

I leave every class feeling more prepared and more encouraged to do my work as a coach. Coaching is a serious and pivotal helping profession. YCI sets the standard in coach training by treating it with the seriousness and quality it deserves. I cannot recommend YCI enough to anyone who wants to enter the coaching profession or master their skills as a coach.
Dr. Olga Korobovsky, MD
I would highly recommend the Youth Coaching Institute to anyone who is pursuing a career in life and career coaching. Leah has the incredible ability to keep training intellectually challenging, professionally evolving and personally beneficial. There is never a dull moment as she encourages all participants to contribute to the learning environment.
The YCI Certification was more than I could have hoped for… the learning and insights gained are invaluable. The environment of encouragement and learning, presence and community is unlike any other I have experienced. To ability to observe Leah’s coaching in action, (at the risk of sounding over the top) felt akin to watching a master painter. I lost count as to how many “AHA!” moments I experienced for my own life as well as with regards to being of service to others. Though I tend to be skeptical of distant format education, it felt as if we were all in the same room, while still remaining in the comfort of my own home. This program was more than a rewarding educational experience, it was truly life transformational. I’m most grateful to YCI and to Leah!
Over the last eight months I have gone from excited and clear headed, to being completely challenged and questioning my abilities, to picking myself up again and learning how to operate as Tammy, ‘The Coach’. When I started, I knew I loved inspiring people to dream and set goals to achieve them, but was completely unfamiliar with the ‘how-to’s’ of coaching. I have gained valuable experience in the psychological, strategic, technical and legal aspects of coaching. This was an incredibly holistic learning experience! Next stop, a Masters in Social Work/Counseling!
The classes provided at YCI are phenomenal! Strength-based teaching and coaching methods are two of the foundations of this program I really appreciate. I have gained greater self-awareness to overcome obstacles both personally and professionally through the class demonstrations, practice sessions and feedback. What I appreciated the most about YCI’s program is how realistic and practical it is for youth that are at risk, have disabilities, or dealing with the peer pressures of school, home or work.
Leah, Thank you for all of the thought, time, and consideration you put into this program. I’ve honestly learned more in just a few weeks than I learned over the course of an entire two semesters of coach training previously. I know you don’t like a lot of praise, but I have to say that you are doing some great things for this world. I’m delighted, humbled, and feel extremely blessed to be a part of it.
Being in the people business, I thought I knew a lot about Coaching until I entered the CYLC program. I was absolutely blown away at how little I really knew. Leah B. Mazzola is an incredible coach and trainer. I recommend her with the highest regard. Her ability to blend professionalism with a down to earth coaching style is remarkable. For the first time in a long time I actually look forward to learning and growing myself as a coach.

I am thankful for the personal and professional growth; and the life changing skills I have gained in this training. They have not only changed my view of the world, but have given me confidence to pursue and become the person I wish to be in life. This training has given me both the access to an invaluable coaching toolbox and the science base to back it up.
As the class began, I quickly realized that this class was not only going to broaden my abilities professionally, but it was also going to challenge me as a person. Leah is a fantastic teacher, and takes the coaching profession very seriously. She teaches with passion and excitement that is contagious, and I found myself anticipating class each week to learn more.
I have been honored to learn alongside talented and diverse classmates that share my passion for empowering our younger generations through coaching. YCI’s founder and instructor, Leah Mazzola is an inspiring living testament proving that we have the power to change our life story. The models taught are all evidence-based practices, the group discussions and supervisions offer continuous constructive feedback allowing for all trainees to maximize their learning potential. Every week Leah does an exceptional job at creating lectures that are powerful, informative, engaging, and relatable. I am so grateful to be a part of a program that has given me the opportunity to practice what I love and live my vision.
Tori Eudy, MS, LPC
I have been enrolled in this wonderful program for 10 weeks now and I can honestly say that it is changing my life. Every day we meet as a class, we all marvel at how much we are learning, changing, and growing. This course is invaluable! It offers lessons that will enrich your life as well as your client’s lives. The tuition is affordable and the classes are convenient.
Jessica Dy, PhD Student
This training is phenomenal! Not only are we learning how we can make a difference in anyone’s life but the training also allows you to look into yourself and make a change within your own life. Everything that we learn in class can immediately be put into practice. I look forward to the content and the engaged learning environment that Leah provides for us each week!
You never really know what to expect when you begin a course that is completely remote and takes place over a series of months. Rest assured that you are in great hands with Leah as she prepares you to become a Certified Youth Life Coach! The training is first rate, and you will leave each class feeling a little more empowered to do this great work. I highly recommend the course to anyone who works with youth on a regular basis. The tools that I have received to effectively mentor and coach teenagers have exceeded my expectations! Leah is amazing! You won’t be disappointed.
Willie Epting, MBA
Leah has the incredible ability to reach people of all socioeconomic and educational levels. Her “go with the flow” style of coaching adds a personal touch to make anyone feel comfortable when being coached, trained, or mentored. She has the ability to relate to any situation and the passion she has for this service is undeniable.
Foxye Brown, RN
YCI provides many resources and tools useful in becoming an effective youth coach, which caters to all types of learners. One thing that I have gained, which was unexpected, was a deeper understanding of who I am and what I want because I have an opportunity to coach or be coached every week!!
Each class provides participants with a deeper understanding of the psychology behind coaching while giving them the tools and resources needed to coach effectively. As a result, students walk away from the training feeling confident in their skills and ready to support youth in making positive changes at home, in school, and in life.
