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!

We know you want to make a difference.  We know you want to help.

You know that this is what you’re meant to be doing.

You are drawn to working with youth.

You wish there were programs and mentors around to support you when you were a teen.

You believe in the power of self-development.

You are feeling a calling, more and more, to hold a space for young people, empower them and nurture them.

You are 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, you have learned a thing or two and feel that it’s your duty to share this with the next generation.

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!)

And you want to go on this next journey with support around you. 

Perhaps you just need a bit of guidance.  A few TOOLS to make sure you create

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


We’d love to help you.

"Definitely do it - such a supportive and creative bunch of people. Very beneficial and not like any program I have seen before."

Alisha Jane Coon



"I already work with teens but I am so glad I did this course! It inspired me to put more "me" into the workshops, gave me more clarity and structure around content, pricing and planning, and doing the course definitely gave me more confidence facilitating workshops! My favourite part of the course was connecting with others who are on the same mission to inspire and help youth."

Gabrielle Goldklang



“I loved this course so much. Not only did it inspire and motivate me to take action in working with young women, it gave me practical, easy-to-manage tips about how to go about setting up my business and run successful programs. Thank you so much Amanda!  You are a true gem!”

"You'll get the right tools to get you ready to support the girls you want to here.  The content was very engaging and thoughtful and has had such a positive impact on my work!"

Sharyn Holmes



“For the niche it targets, Amanda has gone above and beyond to ensure every possibility and area has been covered. I feel confident that this training has equipped me with all the necessary information to lead workshops for youth and know that it will help support other areas of my life and business too.”

Ashley Wheeler



“I loved all of the content!! It was clear that so much thought and love went into creating such a wonderful tangible product and each module has paired so wonderfully with the work that I’m doing with some of my students in individual counselling.  If you are thinking about enrolling in this program, I would say, ‘Go for it!’  You will walk away with a greater sense of purpose and a deeper understanding of the needs of young people.”

Hundreds of people from over 18 countries have completed this training and together, we’ve taught thousands of teens all over the world.  There can never be too many people supporting teens…let’s do it together!
