Do you dream of creating a space for teens where they can:

Be open and honest with no judgement,

Develop important life skills

& Completely embrace the person they truly are within?

 

Do you want to:

Empower them,

Help them feel like they are enough,

& Share what you’ve learned with them?

 

Then you, my friend, are in the right place!

Imagine waking up each day knowing you are making a difference for young people in your community….

Is this is what you’re meant to be doing?

Are you drawn to working with youth?

Do you wish there were programs and mentors around to support you when you were a teen?

Do you believe in the power of self-development and awareness?

Are you feeling a calling, more and more, to hold a space for teens, empower them and nurture them?

Are you craving an opportunity to put your caring, giving spirit to use and tap into what you truly have to offer the world?

No matter your age, would you say you have learned a thing or two and feel that it’s your duty to share this with the next generation?

Perhaps you might even feel like everything has led you to this point (seemingly random jobs, those books you read, that course you took a while ago…it wasn’t for nothing!)

Would you like to go on this next journey with support around you?

something that will really serve the young people you’re hoping to reach.

“When I first come across Amanda’s work with young people, my heart was whispering me, you find the right mentor to learn with. Although life had other plans for me, so it took me another 4 years to finally start my Youth Mentor Training with her.

Despite the fact I was familiar with the field, and have done years of work with hundreds of children and adolescents, I listened to my heart and signed up for the training…It was one of the best decisions I made so far in my mentorship journey.

The training reflects the light Amanda carries: it is gentle, but deep, full of theoretical knowledge, as well as practical wisdom. Even for a person with a prior experience in the field, there is a lot to gain from this training first of all, a welcoming and professional community, and a sense of competence that follows graduation.”
