Youth Coach Global Inc. was founded by International Youth Coach, Educator & Speaker, Rob Stringer, BA, BEd, PCC in 2010.
Youth Coach Global helps kids, teens, and young adults meet with success by making professional life coaching services, programs, and resources available to youth aged 11-21 around the world.
Whereas most companies focus on supporting adults, Youth Coach Global's main focus is dedicated to empowering today's youth—teaching them powerful skills to succeed both now and into the future. These skills support several key areas: academic success, career exploration, youth leadership, as well as self-esteem & risk-taking.
Youth Coach Global's mission is simple: to help today's youth lead lives they LOVE by making affordable coaching services available to them--at home, at school, where ever! "It's not about raising super-stars, but rather giving regular kids the skills and support they need to succeed," says YCG's Founder & Professional Coach, Rob Stringer, "Many of today's youth are in serious need of strategies & support to deal with stress, fears, and failures. However, in the past, parents didn't know where to turn."
Stepping up to fill the need, Youth Coach Global offers a variety of support options. Parents can sign their kids up to: work with a certified professional coach and/or complete one of our exciting programs. Parents and other adults can also sign up for programs and evening workshops geared to teach them coaching skills to use at home. Youth Coach Global also works with local schools, District School Boards, Faculties of Education, and youth-focused organizations offering in-school workshops, empowering motivational talks to students, staff, and parents, and more.
Rob Stringer is a Professional Youth Coach, award-winning Educator, and Speaker with clients around the world. With three decades of experience working with families, Rob provides coaching services and resources that help teens and young adults achieve greater success and happiness both now and in the future. As the founder of Youth Coach Global, Rob also designs and delivers workshops to parents and organizations, as well as mentoring/training other coaches. Rob has also been recognized as one of the Top Youth Coaches by Coach Foundation.
A pioneer in Youth Coaching, Rob has developed the five pillar “WayFinder System” which is at the heart of all his work and client successes. Building upon research in positive psychology, neurobiology, and personal development, Rob’s approach helps youth understand the power of story (Mighty Mindset Mastery), how to create powerful visions of success (Success Mapping), leverage their unique strengths, talents, etc. (Strengths & Styles Discovery), improve control of their emotions, focus, and time (Strategic Action Secrets), and harness the power of reflection (Strategic Review & Celebrations).
When asked what sets him apart from others, he replied ...
The single most important thing has been my unquenchable thirst for knowledge as a life-long learner. Many people once they reach a certain level of credential, experience, or success, lose the drive to continue “sharpening the saw” as Stephen Covey puts it. My love of learning has kept me reading up on the ever-evolving body of research in the areas of positive psychology, neurobiology, mindfulness, psychology, to name a few--all which allow me to continue honing my professional knowledge and skill levels adding even greater value to those I serve.

Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Coaching is an interactive experience where we discover your strengths, talents, interests and passions and use them to help you travel towards "success", however you've defined it.
100%! What happens in our sessions stays between the Coach and the Client, unless other arrangements have been agreed to by all parties in advance.
The time that your coaching process will take depends on the complexity of your goals and your commitment and openness to your process. Some Clients only require 3hrs (6x30min sessions), however, most work with their Coach for up to 3 months (12 weeks), again, depending on the focus.
