We train youth serving professionals in evidence-based coaching to empower underserved youth to overcome and thrive. Our trainees complete 60 hours of International Coach Federation-approved coach training under the supervision of our faculty who hold a Master’s degree or higher and ICF and/or CCE coaching credentials.
During their final stage of training, coaches in training begin working with practice clients as practicum hours to qualify for credentialing. Their practice sessions are evaluated for feedback and ongoing development. Life coaching fees are typically an out of pocket expense as they’re not covered by health insurance. The average market rates for coaching tend to be inaccessible for the majority of our audience. We find offering reduced rate coaching is a beautiful way to make high quality coaching more accessible for the youth we serve while equipping the next generation of coaches to make a positive difference.
What you get:
Five 30-minute sessions, once weekly via phone or video meeting. The first session serves as the intake. Clients are paired with coaches completing their final stage of training. Next available start date – 06/01/2021. Reserve your client slot now as space is limited!
Shortly after we receive your registration payment, you’ll receive an email with the documents you’ll need to get started. We’ll schedule a brief screening phone call to ensure you’re paired with a coach equipped to support your needs and goals.
TERMS & AGREEMENT
Virtual Practice Coaching Client Agreement
Youth Coaching Institute, LLC
This agreement, between Youth Coaching Institute, LLC, and the above-named client and/or the client’s representative(s) will begin upon receipt of the initial coaching installment and will continue for five sessions over five weeks. The coach or client may choose to terminate this agreement at any time.
COACHING SERVICES. The International Coach Federation defines coaching as, “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” A coach in training will be assigned to provide five pre-scheduled 30-minute coaching sessions via phone or video meeting.
COACHING VS. THERAPY. Coaching is a non-directive, person-centered, strength-based, collaborative support service to help functional clients achieve meaningful goals. Clients come to coaching with an interest in self-improvement or measurable progress. Through coaching, clients find insight and direction to identify practical means to reach their goals. The coach guides and supports the client’s planned, intentional, and purposeful action toward achievement. Coaching clients are ready, willing, and able to do the work inherent in the coaching process. They are committed to achieving the outcomes they seek.
Coaches and therapists share a common goal – to enhance well-being and outcomes for those they serve. Deciding which is the best fit for the client depends on their current state of functioning and their needs and goals. Keep in mind, the same client may work with a therapist and a coach to address different needs and goals – if the client’s clinical issue is well-managed and the therapist clears the client for coaching. The therapist may work with the client to address the clinical issue, such as depression, while the coach works with the client around goals that matter to ongoing progress, such as finding clarity around job or career direction or improving academic performance. Here’s an overview of the primary differences:
The patient is struggling with dysfunction related to psychological issues, concerns, or symptoms that interfere with daily tasks.
The patient needs help coping, alleviating pain, or distress related to trauma, disorders, or illness.
The patient wants to work through the problems and get back to normalcy
The patient is looking for a mental health professional to help them overcome and live well again.
The client is functional and does fine with daily tasks.
The client is considered psychologically normal and copes well enough.
The client wants to be better, grow, or set and achieve higher goals.
The client wants to improve performance, relationships, or life satisfaction.
The client is looking for a success partner to help facilitate the next level of growth, advancement, or change.
If you’re confident coaching is the right fit for you based on your current needs and goals, we’re happy to coach you.

The client or the client’s representative understands and agrees to pay coaching fees in the amount of $100.00, which covers five pre-scheduled 30-minute virtual practice client sessions with a coach in training.

The sessions and recordings are otherwise confidential.
