The practice of coaching children and teens has grown more popular as a way of helping youth to: create action steps for personal and academic goals, deal with challenging issues, and obtain guidance and support as they increase their awareness and knowledge about their own lives and future directions.

The certificate program is geared to a broad range of professionals, such as mental health professionals, educators, career, guidance, and pastoral counselors, healthcare providers, camp counselors, and other professionals who work with children and teens.

Offered in Portsmouth, Manchester, and online, workshops are designed for professionals who wish to obtain knowledge and practical skills in coaching the population of children and teens. Learn the principles of the coaching process, examine cases and share experiences, participate in discussion and exercises focusing on coaching tools and techniques, and develop strategies to coach children and teens to recognize their unique strengths as well as develop abilities to deal with challenges and issues that face this generation.
