Youth Empowering Youth: Program Coach

(Virtual Opportunity - Volunteer from Home)

We are looking for adult (19+) volunteers who are passionate about supporting the growth and development of youth (13-18 yrs) and helping them reach their full potential through the Youth Empowering Youth (YEY) Program.

Youth Empowering Youth is a nine-session leadership program facilitated by two trained Youth Facilitators, supported by an adult Coach. The program takes place online using zoom, once a week for 1.5 hours. Each class shares a new concept to help students take accountability for their thoughts, feelings and actions, thus moving them into a place of confidence, security, and self-assurance.

YEY intends to implement the ideas demonstrated in the Success for Teens book. The topics shared during this nine-session program are as follows:

Session 1 - Ripple Effect

Session 2 - Attitude Create Your Life

Session 3 - The Moment You Stop Blaming, You Take Back your Power

Session 4 - Take Action! With small Steps

Session 5 - Fail Forward to Success

Session 6 - Drive Your Life with Powerful habits

Session 7 - Be a Student of Life

Session 8 - Momentum is Your Responsibility

Session 9 - Graduation & Next Steps
