"Youthfully offered me an internship project with a leading university research centre, where my challenge is to design an experiment to evaluate the mitochondrial impact of coffee consumption.
My Youthfully coach is a scientist, so she has been guiding me through the process while still allowing me to feel empowered and in control.
It's been worth every investment and I'd recommend anyone using it as a springboard for their career and receive quality mentorship that isn't as available at school.
"I went from wanting to apply to seven different programs to one. I now know exactly what I want to do both at university and after, and this translated into very clear essays."
"Steph is an amazing coach. I can confidently say she has helped me to become a better writer. Her advice and suggestions have made my essays super strong. When we worked together it was both comfortable and productive. Overall, I had an amazing experience."
"I received an Ivey AEO offer since working with Breanne! The consulting services provided by Breanne have been extraordinary. Her guidance throughout the application process made it significantly easier and less stressful.
She provided step-by-step support and has helped me get accepted into Western Ivey. I strongly recommend her consulting services to all students who hope to gain acceptance into Western Ivey."
"I wanted to send you a note to thank you everything you have done to help Cherine being accepted at Western AEO program.
We have accepted the offer and Cherine will attend Western in the coming academic year. I think without your help, it would have been very challenging to get accepted into this program. We really appreciate the help and guidance you provided. I would definitely recommend you for any future AEO applicants."
Authored a children's book and was admitted into medical school.
"Alex was crucial not only to my first choice, Waterloo Engineering acceptance, but also to the other programs that required supplementary applications. I definitely could not have done it without his advice and great availability."
"I have been very happy with the guidance from Charlie & Joel. They both have been amazing mentors!!"
"I believe that this program is very useful for all students planning to achieve in post-secondary."
"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!"
Gave a TEDx Talk, did a podcast with millions of downloads, and was admitted into business school.
"My experience with [Youthfully] has been extremely positive. Alex was extremely helpful not only with the actual application process itself, but also with providing support and advice from start to end. I cannot be happier with my decision to have completed my journey here!"
"I want to thank [Youthfully] for everything they've done to help me in the application process. I am now accepting my offer to Ivey.
We really appreciate the help and guidance [Youthfully] and Breanne provided. I would definitely recommend you for any future AEO applicants."
Got accepted to Queen's for Computer Science and founded a beauty company featured in major publications like Femme Magazine.
"Our experience with Joel was fantastic, and my daughter gained so much more than her acceptance to Queens Commerce!
Joel focuses on holistic youth development, fostering initiative and self-growth. Throughout the process, she truly gained an awareness of her strengths and possibilities, pushing her to that “next level” of productivity.
It was an incredible journey; Joel’s coaching and leadership brought out the best in her, his sessions are motivating and inspiring. Joel’s direction took her extra-curricular and personal interests crafting an impressive application. He is a pleasure to work with, and we are thrilled that she has earned her place at Queen’s."
"Thank you so much for everything you did to help me get into Waterloo University! I really enjoyed working with you and learning from [Youthfully] - if I could do the whole process again I would!
Thank you for all your time and efforts setting me up for success through reviewing my essays and helping me prep for the video interview. I'm thrilled that I got accepted to my first program and university of choice, Mechatronics at Waterloo with President's Scholarship, which I will be attending this September."
"I got into UBC Sauder and will be attending there in the fall! Thanks for all your help."
"My daughter has been working with Stephanie, and we’ve had an amazing experience with her. She’s been fun, flexible with her busy schedule, and really understands her life and likes and dislikes in order to help her put together the best application possible.
A lot of time, I find adults in tutor/teaching roles don’t connect with teens but I really felt Stephanie connected so well with her. In addition, I’ve tried to stay out of the process because as her mother, she doesn’t want me involved. But anytime I’ve had questions, Stephanie has been more than helpful with filling me in on what’s going on.
She’s been so responsive on both email and the phone and I really feel she understands both of us so well. In addition, she’s just been so accommodating to both of us and our input and schedules. Also, she’s been so kind even just to send friendly reminders to push her along -something that I really appreciate so I don’t have to be the “nag” :)"
"David is a stellar coach. He knows how to compel you to expand your thinking and encourage you to organize your thoughts in a unique and compelling way.
He is highly intelligent but also very socially intuitive. This makes him the perfect coach! So grateful for his help through this application process."
"I am very happy with my experience. I was able to further my understanding and finish my supplemental application."
"I have worked with Simrit for almost six months. Despite starting late, I have received top-notch support to improve my candidacy for highly sought-after programs such as MacMaster BHSc.
We worked together to systematically identify my strengths and weaknesses, helping me become more self-conscious. Also, my time with Simrit has considerably enhanced my analytical thinking, which was crucial when brainstorming and formulating potential responses for the supplementary applications. Simrit went above and beyond to ensure my success and provided outstanding support wherever needed.
Always punctual and committed, Simrit was also an excellent listener; she always tackled the issues with great care and considered my perspective. Moreover, her great attitude and positivity further facilitated the communication of ideas and information. I highly recommend Simrit as a coach and advise everyone to start working with her as early as possible."
"I am very satisfied with my experience working with Breanne. She was very sweet and helpful, guiding me in not only in my university applications but in discovering more about myself which will be undeniably useful for future applications as well.
She is very communicative, responds promptly, and is very adaptable to my schedule which makes this service convenient and worthwhile. I am grateful as I was accepted into all the programs I applied to. It was lovely working with you Bre!"
"I couldn't be happier with the guidance and coaching I got from [my coach]. I got into all of the programs I applied to, including my desired choice Rotman Commerce.
Additionally, I got a $10,000 scholarship from U of T. I would highly recommend Youthfully if you are looking for support along your university application journey (for me I was especially looking for video interview prep/confidence and I am very satisfied)."
"I am very thankful for [my coach's] guidance and checkups with my academic progress. With his assistance, I'm on track to getting core executive positions in many of the clubs I'm participating in. As well, he helped me start my own Entrepreneurship club in my high school."
"Working with Joel, I launched a non-profit wheelchair tennis program, called Aces on Wheels. I also became a finalist in the TD Community Leadership scholarship and was a winner of a RBC Scholarship, valued at $2,500.
I now attend the Queen's Commerce program and obtained an internship after first year with Cisco Systems. Joel has shown me the results of passion combined with work. I now do what I love while striving the make a difference in the world."
"I am very satisfied with Joel’s assistance. Going into grade 12 I was very overwhelmed by the whole application process. However, working 1-on-1 with Joel was the best thing that I could’ve done, as he helped guide me through the entire process, with lots of advice, suggestions, ideas, and etc.
Without Joel I would not be where I am today. I had good extra-curriculars, but Joel helped me create a captivating story out of my essays, resulting in wonderful essays which got me into all the university programs that I applied to.
I would definitely say that this is an investment for your future self. Without Joel I would not be able to embark on the next chapter of my life, as he was a key role model who helped guide me to the finish line. Thanks so much for all the help Joel!"
"I was very happy with her help and it provided me with really helpful tips for my applications."
"I am very happy with my experience. I got into all the universities I applied to with Jessica's help."
"Jessica provided me with the most useful resources. She was kind, thoughtful, and always encouraging. Her guidance helped me get into all my top choices! Thanks Jessica :)"
Launched a non-profit initiative and received offers to Canada's top business programs.
"I am really thankful for the past couple of meetings we have had. Jessica is a great coach and I deeply value all the things she has taught and helped me with so far.
I would not be as far as I am with my goals or have this much excitement for the next few years of highschool without her support."
"Joel really helped me realize my full potential as well as helped me identify the steps to get there."
"I am very happy with my experience with Val. She was able to provide great feedback and edits for my essays. I would definitely recommend her!"
"McKenzie is an excellent coach for university application essays. She made a lot of effort in guiding my essay writing process, so I was able to highlight my strengths and make myself a more attractive candidate to universities.
She also used her expertise to provide me with many useful personalized feedbacks, which increased my confidence and chances of getting into my dream program."
"McKenzie was a wonderful coach. She was patient and understanding. She made me realize my full potential."
"I started Youthfully after already finishing my application essays, and so I was just expecting some coaching on my interview skills.
However, Jess was able to noticeably improve the quality of my essays. I can confidently say that compared to before, I do have a much higher chance of getting into my desired university. Not only that, I received great coaching on how to succeed in interviews, and how to stand out among the rest.
In general, being able to talk to someone much more experienced like Jess and ask for advice and guidance did so much to help ease my mind about this process, and I highly recommend it!"
"The admissions consulting service provided by Alex and Joel exceeded all of my expectations! With the help of exceptionally thorough and experienced consultants, I was admitted to the program of my dreams, Queen's Commerce, along with Western's Richard Ivey School of Business.
The friendly staff provided step by step support throughout every aspect of the application process. I strongly recommend their admission consulting services to all students hoping to gain acceptance to the school of their dreams!"
"Simran was very helpful and provided lots of great insight to help me craft my personal profile.
She offered me great support in this very stressful time of university applications. I am satisfied with my classes with Simran and Youthfully's customer service."
"Alana put me on track and helped me formulate a well-structured and articulated essays tailored to the University in which I’m applying; I couldn’t have done it without her."
"Matt has been extremely personable and allowed for a very comfortable space for creativity. He was extremely flexible and helpful in achieving my deadlines."
"I am really happy with my experience with Matt. He made the creative process to writing my Ivey HBA application essay very seamless.
Matt challenged my way of thinking and provided highly personalized feedback that tailored to strengthening my weaknesses. Overall, great experience!"
"I am extremely satisfied and very thankful to Sarah. I learned many new things about myself and was able to improve my writing skills."
"Amreen is a beyond amazing coach. Even though I connected with her fairly late in the admissions process, she was still able to help me craft amazing essays for programs such as McMaster and Queen's Health Science that gave me confidence about my chances of getting into such competitive programs and satisfaction about what I submitted.
Beyond just admissions related coaching, she was always there to help my alleviate my stress and provide mental support through such a long and strenuous process. She was always a dedicated coach and her skill and expertise were reflected in everything she was doing.
Because of her, I was able to find my voice in my writing and she helped me dig deep into myself to formulate ideas that were unique to me. I would highly recommended Amreen to anyone as the mentorship she provides is undoubtedly priceless and she goes above and beyond in everything she does. "
"I found that the Waterloo application questions asked a lot but didn’t give enough character space, so [my coach] helped me in picking the more important answers that best answer all the questions.
I loved the templates. It allowed me to organize my thoughts and write the best answers in the least amount of characters."
"While working with [my Youth Coach], I realized the value of my accomplishments, enhanced my own self-awareness and worked towards becoming a better leader. I'm using these skills as a student at Queen's Commerce."
Was admitted into a top-tier engineering program and hired for two competitive co-ops.
"I am so impressed with the level of expertise and professionalism I experienced in dealing with the team. We worked with [Youthfully] and [our Youth Coach] is truly amazing. I was a little skeptical in talking to them about my daughter's needs. My initial one hour Skype conversation with Joel was so informative I knew she couldn't lose.
She did in fact gain acceptance to Queen's Commerce in April, and Rotman Commerce in May. I cannot thank you enough for helping daughter realize her dreams of acceptance to two outstanding university programs."
"I cannot thank you enough for your assistance in attaining acceptance to Queen's Commerce and Rotman Commerce. I could not have done it without you.
Right from the beginning you made me feel like I had known you for years. We had a few laughs, but more importantly you played a huge role in pulling out all in intricate details of my life that I never would have thought were important. Overall it was a great experience and I cannot thank you enough."
"[Youthfully] is knowledgeable, helpful and a great source of comfort in the overwhelming time of university applications. I would recommend their services to just about anyone writing a supplementary to one of Canada's top schools.
They have a deep knowledge of the admissions process and will pinpoint key areas of needed improvement in your application. Even if you are confident in your own judgement, having a second opinion from them could mean the difference between acceptance and rejection."
"I received an Ivey AEO offer since working with [my Youth Coach]! The coaching services she provided have been extraordinary. Her guidance throughout the application process made it significantly easier and less stressful.
She provided step-by-step support and has helped me get accepted into Western Ivey. I strongly recommend her coaching services to all students who hope to gain acceptance into Western Ivey."
"I heard back from Western Ivey and Queen's Commerce. I got into both programs. Breanne was excellent to work with."
"External editing is an essential part of writing any great essay. Friends and family sometimes can't provide the insight required for you to write your best application essays. They offer a highly personalized and well-focused framework through which you can communicate your own ideas more effectively than you thought possible. It's truly an exceptional service."
"Before I applied for Ivey AEO I had absolutely no idea how to funnel my ideas into an organized and effective paragraph. I also had no clue as to what Ivey was specifically looking for.
[Youthfully] helped me by personally reviewing all my drafts every step of the way. I was able to receive detailed and personalized feedback on all my extracurricular essays and drafts. [My Youth Coach's] thoughtful feedback helped me perfect my responses and after over a month of careful editing, I was able to create an effective AEO application that showcased my abilities as a student but also how I would be a great fit for Western.
I was able to get my AEO offer in March thanks to the continuous support."
"We made the challenging decision of putting our son through the [Youthfully] program and all we have to say is money well spent! The support was outstanding and we couldn't be happier to the services provided to us."
"Adrian was a superb mentor and teacher throughout the entire admissions process. His outstanding attention to detail and essay critiquing skills really made my essay stand out from the others. I would most certainly recommend his services to anyone passionate about getting into the IVEY program."
"I recently received an offer of admission from Queen's University for the commerce program! I wanted to thank you for all of your help to achieve this huge goal of mine. I have decided to accept the offer and I can't wait to start studying at Queen's. I applied with an average of 96%; however, I believe the essay is what helped me to stand out from the other applicants!"
"I got offers of admission to both Queen's and Western's commerce programs last week! I just accepted my offer to Queen's because that has always been my preferred school, and the school I bought your Bootcamp to help with.
I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help; your Bootcamp was the edge I needed to get into both schools. I am incredibly excited for what the future holds."
"[Youthfully] helped me with my Personal Profile for my application for UBC Sauder. [My coach] knows what he's doing. He was really good at taking my story and showcasing it in a way that impressed me and I'm sure will also impress the admissions team.
He does his background research really well to know more about you, your work, and other things that you were a part of. I'm still impressed with how fast and just after our first phone call he just knew the type of person I was and what made me tick. Without his help, I would have been very stressed about my personal profile since it was so essential to my acceptance at UBC and it wouldn't have turned out half as good.
I would recommend him to anyone applying to UBC Sauder."
"They drew things that I did not think were important up and out of my life and onto the page. The process was very efficient, respectful, and beneficial and I never found myself waiting for a response. Help was provided quickly and in a professional manner, and without a doubt I would've not been able to create my application the way I did without their help.
Pieces and parts of my life were all pulled together, and I believe it left me with a final application that truly reflected who I am as a student. The most unique thing about the experience was being able to have a professional available at any time for a second opinion or to double-check a piece of your work that essentially can decide the path of the rest of your life. I would highly recommend their services to anyone interested in applying to a competitive university program! I appreciate all the expert advice I was given and cannot thank you enough!"
"Thanks for helping me get into Queen's Commerce. I learned a significant amount about myself and was able to achieve more in a year than in my whole life before [Youthfully]."
"I used the program as a stepping stone in my development. It allowed me to expand my horizons and achieve what I could've only imagined, all in a really quick time-frame, including getting an official offer from Queen's Commerce. Thank you!"
"Working with Joel set me on the path to becoming the best leader I can be at Queen's Commerce. He helped me recognize and appreciate the current and future value of my accomplishments as a student, athlete and a community member."
"This is an exceptional service to use if you are in need of help for your university application. Joel's valuable experience guarantees that you have the competitive edge in your application. I was successfully accepted to my first choice program, Queen's Commerce in May. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone applying to university."
"[Youthfully] helped me so much on discovering my career interests and redefining my career direction and identity.
This program significantly helped me in my admission to all the universities I applied, including Queen's Commerce."
"I've been working with [Youthfully] for the past four months and they have radically helped me improve my application. [My coach] guided me to launch the first ever Jack.org Chapter at my school and he's also helped me launch the first Entrepreneurship Club at my school.
I am very happy and much more confident in my applications to business school, and that's all thanks to [my coach]."
"Victor exceeded our expectations. He made himself accessible and provided excellent guidance for my son."
"I got into Queen's Commerce and I've accepted my offer. Thank you so much for your guidance and support on the application process. It was a true game changer for me."
"As a student, I would limit myself to doing just what was asked of me, but as my mentor, Joel pushed me to think outside the box and gave me a platform to accomplish great things.
With Joel's guidance, I wrote and self-published an Amazon best-selling book on personal finance for teenagers and received an offer from Queen's Commerce. Thank you so much for the help!"
"I was accepted to both Ivey HBA AEO and Queen's Commerce and couldn't be happier. [Youthfully] has helped me reach my potential by showing me that I can pursue my dreams even as a student, learning valuable lessons along the way and fostering independence."
"Joel was a great help in the process of my application to Queen's Commerce. His detailed videos made it clear how to go about writing essays, and what the admission council wants in their future students. This program helped relieve some of the stress I was feeling prior to beginning my essay. I would highly recommend for any prospective students to utilize this program as not only does it help with your application, you gain an overall greater self awareness."
"Working with Joel was one of the best decisions I made in my university application process. Not only did he clarify the confusing and slightly daunting process of applying to universities and navigating student sites, but he helped me tremendously grow as a person. Joel offered insight I had never considered and sparked creative ideas and motivation to enhance my extracurricular experiences and grow my network.
After working with Joel, I've become more mature and eager to push myself to excel in academics and leadership opportunities as well as other areas of my personal life. I really enjoyed my conversations and work sessions with Joel, and I would really recommend him to anyone looking for guidance and inspiration in the university application process."
"One on one help, always helpful and creative, always available to discuss."
"Alex provides a comprehensive and affordable admissions consulting service. The team will go through the step-by-step process to help you pick out all intricate details of your life. With the help of them, you will be able to form powerful personal statements that will reveal to the admissions team a deeper side of yourself."
"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."
"Thanks so much for the support on the Waterloo application and the coaching video interview. It’s been a long process and we couldn’t have been accepted without you."
"I highly recommend Joel for his commitment level and the outstanding quality of his essay support. I planned to complete my Queen's Commerce essays over the holidays using an editor my peers used. But the editor was unresponsive with the Dec 31st essay deadline looming. So, I reached out to Joel and got an immediate response.
He was incredible about accommodating my very tight deadline. For a marginally higher cost, I received a materially better outcome well beyond my expectations. My peers who used the other editor are raving about the quality of essays Joel helped me produce."
"I got into queens commerce this morning! Thank you so much for all your help, I couldn't have done it without you. I'm so excited!!"
"Joel's consulting work with Noa was truly a game changer. He worked with her to develop an X Factor as a common theme. He then helped her craft all of her personal statements around this theme. The end result was exceptional. Noa was accepted to Queen's Commerce and awarded a scholarship. I told Joel his consulting fee was money well spent long before we learned that she had been accepted.
When she was accepted, in mid May, my first phone call was to Joel to thank him again. What is interesting is that Noa did not meet Joel face to face through this entire process. All of the work they did together was by phone text and email. I would recommend Joel's services highly to anyone looking to give their son or daughter an edge above the competition."
"Our son was accepted to UBC Sauder. Thanks for your help."
"I want to thank [Youthfully] for everything they've done to help me in the application process. I am now accepting my offer to Ivey. We really appreciate the help and guidance [Youthfully] and Breanne provided. I would definitely recommend you for any future AEO applicants."
"I believe that this program is very useful for all students planning to achieve post-secondary."
"I just wanted to give a huge thank you to you and your team for putting together such comprehensive resources to guide me through the stressful application process to Queen's Commerce and Western Ivey AEO. I have received an offer to both of these programs! You helped me carefully and confidently tell my story as an applicant in the most compelling way possible!"
"[My Youth Coach] was crucial not only to my first choice, Waterloo Engineering acceptance, but also to the other programs that required supplementary applications. I definitely could not have done it without his advice and great availability."
“A big thank you to [Youthfully]. [Their] knowledge on what is needed to be the best has helped my daughter to think outside the box, helped her discover her strengths and has greatly increased her chances to get into some of hardest universities out there.
I highly recommend [Youthfully] to any families out there that are looking to give their children that little extra to make them special!”
"We engaged [Youthfully] to assist with our daughter’s application to Queen’s University Smith School of Business (Queen’s Commerce). We had an initial meeting with Joel and Jessica. Jessica was our daughter’s coach throughout the application process.
[Youthfully]’s coaching program is not just about writing an application essay – it is a coaching program that is much more than completing an application process. Jessica had regular meetings with our daughter in an effort to get to know her better and challenge her thoughts while raising her own awareness about her goals, passions, strengths and weaknesses. Jessica’s knowledge and experience of the application process specifically with respect to Queen’s Commerce is outstanding. Most importantly, we were very impressed with Jessica’s ability to challenge our daughter with her thinking, writing skills, and creativity.
Jessica was very professional to work with and definitely appreciated her flexibility and availability over the holidays to support our daughter through the application process. Not only did Jessica’s experience and guidance help with the Queen’s Commerce application but our daughter was able to leverage that guidance for her other applications. Our daughter was very happy to be accepted into Queen’s Commerce Class of 2025. We were very impressed with Jessica’s knowledge, experience and guidance and would recommend her to anyone looking for support through the application process."
"Just wanted to let you know I got an AEO offer to Ivey and that your service was an immense help - it saved me hours of further research and provided unparalleled clarity. Thank you for your help over the past year and I wish you all the best!"
"They were such a great help to me! I couldn't have been as successful without their help. I recommend Alex to everyone who is stuck on how to attack their application. You won't be let down!"
"I am very happy with the service that Alex offered. They helped me a lot with my future showing me different ways and options to reach my goal. The fact that they answered my emails quickly impressed me, it was always a matter of minutes for me to receive an answer throughout our thorough consultation process. Great service. I would strongly recommend it!"
"We have received fantastic services from Alex, and our daughter has got her dream school's offer. Again, thank you very much and all the best!"
"I got into queens commerce this morning! Thank you so much for all your help, I couldn’t have done it without you. I’m so excited!!"
"We are happy with your exceptional services. My son learned a lot while having the essays reviewed with the team. You both provide incredible and invaluable professional insight."
"[Youthfully] was an invaluable resource to our family, especially to our daughter. The service we received was efficient, effective and very, very reasonably priced. I highly recommend Alex and Joel to any student interested in achieving an acceptance to a competitive school or program."
"They were really supportive and helpful throughout the entire time, I learned a lot through this process and will be able to apply it beyond school applications. I found this extremely beneficial and definitely worth it, so glad I chose [Youthfully]!"
"We engaged [Youthfully] to assist with our daughter's application to Queen's University Smith School of Business (Queen's Commerce). We had an initial meeting with Joel and Jessica. Jessica was our daughter's coach throughout the application process. [Youthfully]'s coaching program is not just about writing an application essay â€“ it is a coaching program that is much more than completing an application process.

We were very impressed with Jessica's knowledge, experience and guidance and would recommend her to anyone looking for support through the application process."
"This is an incredible resource that allowed me to succeed in my university application process. [My Youth Coach] walked me through a very easy and simple process that allowed me to perfect my essays and application. They not only helped with the application itself, but the consultants were invaluable resources.
They were people I could talk to who were actually at my dream programs so I was able to have a first-hand experience at those schools. They were so helpful and easy to use and cannot see why everybody doesn't use this service."
"Joel truly provided me with one of a type service, helping me every step of the way. From the very beginning by helping me understand my strengths and weaknesses all the way to crafting my written responses in a articulate manner.
He truly helped me understand my thoughts and ideas and put them on a page. Through Joel's help, I was able to attain an offer at the Smith School of Business (QCom). For everyone looking, I would sincerely recommend Joel for his hard work and dedication to each student. Day or night Joel was really accommodating and always there to help!"
"Because of Joel's guidance, I made big changes and improvements to my extra-curriculars, including starting a local non-profit initiative that has been quite successful.
His coaching was instrumental in helping me get this initiative off the ground and I believe it's been an integral part of my application. I was successfully admitted to Queen's Commerce and now I am thriving in the program. I am continuing to run my non-profit on the side and I am excited about continuing to leverage skills and experiences that [Youthfully] and Joel has taught me."
"Many thanks for the great work you have put in, which has all been very worthwhile. You have made the process much easier and more enjoyable for her. Your guidance and assistance has removed a lot of stress from me and my husband... I am grateful for that!"
"Working with Joel has been a pleasure. He offers a creative, academic and persuasive writing style.
Through phone calls, he has helped me put my thoughts into words and place information through my essays to optimize my chances of acceptance. And through about two months of working together, Joel's helped me with multiple applications to which I'm submitting very confidently.
I'd recommend this program for any student applying to university."
"[My coach] help me with my application to Queen's and to the Chancellor's Award. He was very flexible with timing and finding time that worked really well for both of us.
He guided me through my Chancellor's Scholarship application and my university application, as well as starting my own business, and I'm very happy with the results."
"Working with Joel was an amazing decision and has helped make a complicated and stressful process a lot clearer. He was always available for assistance in which he guided me throughout my applications, which I now feel really confident about. He got to know me on a personal level which allowed us to contribute and be on the same page at all times."
"[Youthfully] helped help me with my McMaster Integrated Science and Health Science application. They really made this intimidating process much less stressful and I was accepted to both programs.
They did that by really outlining what the university's are going to be looking for in an application and helped me really dig down to find subjects that I'm passionate about writing and it really shows on my applications. Overall, they know what they're doing.
They have a lot of experience and that shows. They have been super helpful and helped me produce a very solid application for both programs."
"We're are delighted to announce that our daughter got into all the programs that she applied to: Ivey, Commerce, Laurier BBA, Degroote, Dalhousie Commerce, Kinesiology and Nursing."
"Initially, I was concerned about hiring someone for my son in his pursuit of admission to Mac. I had heard all sorts of stories about application services and I wanted my son to be admitted on his own merits.
Joel did a wonderful job of coaching my son. He helped him develop his thoughts and express them clearly. Joel showed a great deal of patience and in the end, my son was accepted to both the Health Sciences and Integrated Science programs. This success would not have happened without Joel's help and I would recommend him to anyone looking for admission to these “hard to get into” programs."
"We used [Youthfully's] services this year to help my daughter with her Queen's application and her Chancellor's Award.
At first. I was a little skeptical hiring him over the internet and being in a different city. But in fact it worked out really, really well. He was a big help to us, to me and my daughter, and her application was very successful. She was the application award winner for her school, and she also really enjoyed working with him."
"When my daughter began working with Joel, he suggested in order to be a strong applicant for university, she needed to work on our extracurricular activities. Based on her interests and passions, he said to work on ideas that would truly stand out.
He took the time to figure her out and what would be successful for her and didn't offer preset packaged ideas. With his help my daughter started a successful business and rolled out two projects that proved popular at school.
Joel also coached her, again taking the time and effort to help her prepare a customized paper that represented her in the best possible light. I strongly think that thanks to Joel's help and expertise my daughter's chance of getting into the program of her choice improve greatly."
"During Joel's process, it was thorough, detailed, organized, never rushed and it was clear he wanted me to create the best possible product to my applications. I looked forward to the sessions and I feel I completed all of the steps in the application with quality and focus.
Joel has an excellent process and approach to his client's applications starting with discovering his client's personalities through professional surveys, step-by-step essay completion, and his advice towards his clients when they're working with their personal achievements."
"In a few words, [Youthfully's] input was invaluable to my son's personal statement and responses to various application questions. While my son worked to have the necessary criteria, accomplishments, experience and volunteer work to become an excellent candidate to admission committees, [his Youth Coach] was outstanding at helping to integrate this information in a way that elevated it's worth to the school and the community and simultaneously demonstrate how he'd contribute moving forward in a genuine and valued way.
The magic though is in how he assisted in creating uniqueness to my son's answers that is current and interesting for readers. This is what I think tipped the scales in my son's favour when competing against hundreds of exceptional students. [His coach] was positive, friendly, and easy to work with. He enjoys setting students up for success. Lastly, I was struck by how easy it was for him to do all of this without meeting my son or I in person and how he modelled and taught my son his way of thinking and process along the way for his future use."
"As parents, we were really impressed with Joel's service when he helped our son navigate his way through the overwhelming university application process.
His organized and directed approach to the process was very effective through personality testing, Discovery sessions, the application and advice on essay writing, he helped my son present the strongest possible application he could. He also shared specific strategies on effectively communicating accomplishments and how to represent those specific strengths and attributes as strongly as possible to allow the essence of the applicant's character and personality to really shine through.
All I can say is after the first conversation with Joel we had a huge sigh of relief. His knowledge is current and relevant. He demystified the process and it was a true pleasure dealing with such a professional. I highly recommend Joel service to any applicant on their journey through the university application process."
"[Youthfully] has been working with me for the past six months in the process of putting together my Health Science application. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable throughout the entire process and in answering any questions I had to begin with.
With [my Youth Coach's] help I was able to start up my first entrepreneurial project, something I'm sure I would not have been able to do without his help. Together we were able to put together an application that communicated my ideas and represented who I was as a student. I would highly recommend Joel and his expertise to anyone and I cannot thank him enough for his help."
"I truly cannot thank you enough for all your help in getting me into Queen's Commerce. It's been a pleasure working with you. I have learned a lot about myself through this process and you have pushed me to do many things that I wouldn't have been able to do by myself."
"Joel's program helped me significantly develop my leadership skills and build an application that got me admitted to McMaster Health Sciences—my dream program."
"I have absolutely no regrets working with Joel. He made the process of applying to universities a lot less stressful and made me consider things I never would have considered mentioning in my essays. I was accepted to Queen's Commerce and Western Ivey. 10/10 would recommend this to anyone applying!"
"My husband and I really can't thank you enough for all you have done for our daughter's admission into Queen's Commerce.
You have challenged her thinking and writing, and pushed her to position her past accomplishments in ways she had not done so previously. You also gave her the confidence and initiative to begin a project that I believe she will sustain and draw further confidence from as well. You got to know her quickly and taught and motivated her in a way that she really responded to as well. I know we engaged you to assist with the application process, but I really believe your influence will stay with her and she will draw from your suggestions and interactions in the future."
"I worked with [my coach] for about a year and really appreciated the amount of effort he put into developing me, as an individual, specifically. From diving into my interests and building onto them with [my coach's] expertise and resources, I launched my own initiative that is something I want to pursue in the future.
Throughout this entire process, I learned a lot about myself and became much more self aware. This highly resonated onto my application, and resulted in me receiving a Queen's Commerce acceptance, amongst other prestigious universities."
"Working with [Youthfully] is one of the best decisions I have ever made. When it was time to start writing applications for universities I found myself struggling to find what to write about so I reached out for help.
[Youthfully] helped me discover my strengths and leadership skills that I never knew I had. My coach also helped me set big goals and achieve them. He provided great direction and ongoing feedback. My coach has made my application experience a lot less stressful and I don't know what I would have done without his help. I would highly recommend their services as they provides a wealth of experience and expertise in the process."
"[Youthfully] was an amazing help for my supplementary applications for the McMaster BHSc program. I found that [my coach] made sure that we had our own ideas and helped us craft it correctly for the admissions team.
My essays truly looked amazing after my sessions. I found the best results came when there was significant effort on my side as well. This way we had constructive dialogue that resulted in the best writing possible."
"The best part of the bootcamp would certainly be the 1 on 1 support from Joel. It's always nice to have someone else that's credible to look over your application. However, I found lots of information in the boot camp to be repetitive."
"I found [Youthfully] just less than a week before I had to submit my Queen's Commerce supplementary essays for the month of December. However, Joel accommodated to my short time frame to complete my essays, providing me with excellent feedback and assistance.
His Queen's Commerce crash course provided me with the insightful information I probably would have spent hours researching for. His excellent service helped me get an acceptance into my dream program! Highly recommend and worth the money!"
"[Youthfully] has genuinely been a tremendous help in my application process. The individualized attention on crafting personal stories and building my resume was almost indispensable!"
"Thanks to Joel's help I was accepted into every program I applied to, including UBC Commerce, Western Ivey AEO, and Queen's Commerce. Joel's guidance made me feel much more confident in my applications and I am extremely content with his service."
"Joel helped me immensely with my application to Queens Commerce. He helped me think of many things that I never considered in my essays, developed my self-awareness as a student and person, and overall strengthened my application immensely.
I ultimately received an offer and I highly recommend Joel for anyone applying to competitive programs (whether it's Queens, Ivey, Mac Healthsci, or any other school) and needs some help on refining supplementary applications - it makes a huge difference in your acceptance!"
"I actually applied to Queen's Commerce last year and didn't get accepted. This year I decided to take my application more seriously and signed up for this Bootcamp. I think it was worth every penny because the information it provided was the edge I needed to get accepted this year. Thanks again, Joel!"
"Joel truly went above and beyond every expectation I had when I bought the bootcamp. I would strongly recommend him to help you navigate the tough university admissions process."
"I can not say enough good things about Joel and [Youthfully].
We used his online program to help my son get into Queen's Commerce. The program was easy to follow and filled with exceptional information. Joel was also available by email for any questions we had along the way. He was always professional and we were consistently impressed with his expertise. I would confidently recommend Joel and [Youthfully]. We are also another one of Joel's success stories as my son was indeed accepted to Queens Commerce!"
"I highly recommend using Joel at [Youthfully]. His bootcamp and guidance with my supplementary application helped to get me into my dream program - Commerce at Queen's!!"
"Jessica was incredibly helpful. She helped to take my essays to a completely new level. Super satisfied with [Youthfully]."
"Really amazing service!"
"I am a visual learner and so your bootcamp was a very important tool for me do use when applying to Queen's Commerce. Thank you so much for all that you've done."
"The bootcamp modules also help you develop you as a person and encourages self-awareness, strengthening your application as a whole as well. It played an integral role in my acceptance to Queen's Commerce, and I would highly recommend it to those who are serious about their applications to the program."
"I bought the Queen's Commerce Admissions Bootcamp, with the dream of getting accepted into the class of 2024.... and I did! Joel at [Youthfully] provided quick and helpful assistance. Excellent service. Highly recommend."
"With the help of the [Youthfully] Bootcamp, I was able to receive an offer for my dream program- Queens Commerce. As I had no idea what the admissions process was, I liked the detailed templates and examples as I could apply them to my extracurriculars. Joel was great at providing insightful suggestions and really helped me communicate my thoughts in a clear and unique way. This is a great program for anyone who is looking to set themselves apart when applying to a competitive program!"
"Very good website, trustworthy source, and credible. Everything is easy to navigate. More blogs on other university programs would certainly help out students when making the decision on which University to attend."
"[Youthfully's] Bootcamp provided me with the confidence to be accepted to my dream program, Ivey. The videos were extremely informative and Joel and his team do a fabulous to prepare his students for university applications."
"I got into Queen's Commerce today. I'm incredibly happy and I wanted to thank you for everything you did to help me. I'll be sure to talk to everyone I know applying to unis next year. You were over the top, no other editor came close to your value. Thanks again Charlie."
"Charlie was an excellent mentor throughout the entire application process. His detail-oriented approach and talented editing skills allowed my application to stand out from all of the others. He helped me tweak the little pieces in my essay that ended up making a huge difference. Would definitely recommend this service to anyone passionate about getting into the Queen's Commerce program! 10/10!"
"Charlie was extremely helpful and answered all my questions promptly. His comments helped me refine my application and I felt very comfortable submitting my final work. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would recommend!"
"Charlie was excellent and always available to help me out in my application to Queen's Commerce. He helped me express my thoughts in an organized manner to be able to successfully articulate the best version of myself.
His coaching has taught me valuable lessons that I not only applied to my application, but also ones that I will take with me in the future. I am happy to say that I've been offered to attend Queen's Commerce and other top business programs with Charlie's guidance."
"Charlie was an amazing Coach. He really helped me express my essay ideas clearly. He was always available whenever I had questions or required assistance."
"What I really liked about the bootcamp was the essay templates that were given to help out with my answers. It alleviates a lot of stress as a student. Instead of trying to concoct an application answer out of thin air, the templates give a lot of inspiration on what to write about, and let's you keep an organized and understandable mind as you write.
I also really enjoyed the samples that were shared during the bootcamp. The samples gave me a clear direction on how to perfect my choice of words, as well as what to focus on or omit in my answer. It's also really nice to have someone actually go through all the application questions and examples.
I wouldn't say I disliked anything, as the entire bootcamp was very useful."
“External editing is an essential part of writing any great essay. Friends and family sometimes can't provide the insight required for you to write your best application essays.
They offer a highly personalized and well-focused framework through which you can communicate your own ideas more effectively than you thought possible. It's truly an exceptional service.”
"Thanks so much for the support on the Waterloo application and coaching on the video interview. It's been a long process and I couldn't have been accepted without you."
"My favourite part of the bootcamp is probably the essay examples. I like how you gave different examples for different engineering streams. I also liked your essay templates. It made me more organized and it helped me keep track of my character count."
"I found that the Waterloo application questions asked a lot but didn't give enough character space, so the bootcamp helped me in picking the more important answers that best answer all the questions. I loved the templates. It allowed me to organize my thoughts and write the best answers in the least amount of characters."
"The admissions consulting service provided by Alex and Joel exceeded all of my expectations!
With the help of exceptionally thorough and experienced consultants, I was admitted to the program of my dreams, Queen's Commerce, along with Western's Richard Ivey School of Business. The friendly staff provided step by step support throughout every aspect of the application process. I strongly recommend their admission consulting services to all students hoping to gain acceptance to the school of their dreams."
"[Youthfully] helped me refine my application and tailor it to the program of my choice."
"Alex is an extraordinary coach and I recommend any student obtaining his mentorship and guidance."
"Our experience with Joel was fantastic, and my daughter gained so much more than her acceptance to Queens Commerce! Joel focuses on holistic youth development, fostering initiative and self-growth.
Throughout the process, she truly gained an awareness of her strengths and possibilities, pushing her to that “next level” of productivity. It was an incredible journey; Joel's coaching and leadership brought out the best in her, his sessions are motivating and inspiring. Joel's direction took her extra-curricular and personal interests crafting an impressive application. He is a pleasure to work with, and we are thrilled that she has earned her place at Queen's."
