Students are struggling without the right support.

Students face significant challenges as they transition into adulthood.

There’s an overwhelming number of options for their future, a highly competitive job market and university admissions process, and a deluge of distractions, expectations, and competing priorities.

But many aren’t getting the support they want or need.

No wonder 91% of students report being stressed¹.


They feel stuck in a flood of overwhelm, hindering growth.

Students find it hard to plan ahead and be intentional with their time because they’re constantly scrambling to catch up and keep their head above water.

This can result in reactive behaviour, procrastination, and a tendency to seek out quick-fixes and short-cuts—ultimately hindering their potential growth and achievement.

We can help.

Coaching addresses the underlying factors for success.

Coaching ventures beyond the surface to help students build valuable skills, self-awareness, and experiences that will differentiate them and lead to inevitable success.

Our coaching programs are all 1:1, working closely with each student to challenge their thinking, keep them accountable, encourage self-reflection, and pursue goals beyond what they thought was possible.

99% of students & parents recommend 1:1 coaching.

Youthfully Reviews Stephanie


Isaac’s coach helped him prepare and deliver a TEDx Talk and high-profile podcast interviews about an issue he’s passionate about. By cultivating self-awareness, leadership, and communications skills, and creating a strategic plan of execution, he got into a top-tier business program, obtained strong extracurricular roles, and landed two amazing internships.

Mara’s coach helped her streamline her extracurriculars, cultivate a clear sense of self, and identify clear goals she later attained, such as self-publishing a children’s book that educated young Tanzanians on basic medical health and receiving admission to medical school.


Prabhgun’s coach helped him streamline his extracurriculars, improve his skills, and achieve audacious goals. He built a purposeful portfolio that showcased his passion for coding, fitness, and data/analytics.

“The program is a very intensive process, but what you get out of it is truly invaluable, and will last a lifetime.
I was admitted to Queen's Commerce and won Queen's University's prestigious Chancellor's Award, valued at $36,000 over four years.”

"I can confidently say that taking help from Alex was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I got into my top choice at Waterloo Engineering and I couldn't have done it without his help!

Alex was very helpful and provided me with suggestions on both my AIF and practice video interviews in order to maximise my chances of getting in. Once again, thank you Alex and [Youthfully]!

I highly recommend this consulting service to any future students applying to Waterloo Engineering!"




"Joel's guidance and support was invaluable. His understanding of the process—as well as the quality of submissions—allowed our daughter to raise the bar on her responses and optimize her chances of acceptance. Thank you Joel for getting us through a very stressful and critical period."



“A huge sigh of relief."
