Get Into Your Dream School—the First Time.

Work 1-on-1 with a coach to gain a meaningful edge on the most competitive undergraduate university applications.

Limited spots available



University admissions is more stressful than ever.

Getting into a great university program is a competitive process with thousands of students vying for a limited number of spots. This can leave applicants feeling ill-prepared and uncertain about how to stand out from the crowd.

Essay, assessments, video interviews, and portfolios can be particularly daunting, and it’s easy to feel like your application doesn’t truly capture who you are and all the hard work you’ve done throughout high school.

The standard approach won’t help you stand out.

Essays with generic responses lacking creativity, unclear and scattered responses, scripted or unprepared interviews, and one-dimensional extracurriculars won’t help set you apart from others.

App reviewers see the same applications over and over. So, it’s crucial for you to find unique ways to showcase your strengths and experiences. This is what will help differentiate yourself from other applicants.


A successful application has depth.

Top schools seek exceptional individuals, not simply polished essays.

There are many layers beneath a successful application, like researching the programs you’re applying to, and telling a unique story that shows your self-awareness, interests, goals, skills, and experiences.

By making an effort to develop all these areas, you’re more likely to be successful and get into the most competitive programs.

The Youthfully Advantage

As the pioneer and global leader of holistic youth coaching, we provide the world’s most comprehensive platform for student growth and achievement.

The best 1:1 support for university applications.

Youthfully coaches are alumni, staff, and former app reviewers from your dream programs. They know what evaluators look for and what a winning application looks like.

We only hire the best (just 1% of applicants) and they span various fields and industries.

They get to know you on a personal level and will go above-and-beyond to help you conquer the complex and competitive application process.


Coaching designed with continuity in mind.

Getting into a great university doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be successful once you’re there.

That’s why our commitment to your success doesn’t end after you get the acceptance letter.

We’re here to support you in overcoming the many new extracurricular, career, and academic challenges you face at university—which means more continued support by coaches who already know you.

I’ve been in your shoes…

Are you feeling overwhelmed and anxious about applying to competitive university programs? You’re not alone.

I know from personal experience that it can be an incredibly daunting and challenging process. Even with my dad’s help as a guidance counselor, I struggled to navigate supplementary applications, and the little advice I was able to obtain from others was either surface-level or unclear.

Today, the application process is more rigorous than ever, and students often don’t realize they need help until it’s too late. They submit generic responses, overload their essays, and struggle during interviews.

That’s why Youthfully exists. Our coaching services are here to provide you with the tailored guidance, soft skills development, and support you need to succeed.

Don’t let fear and uncertainty hold you back. A coach will help you take control of your future and achieve your admissions goals and beyond.

“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!”




“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!”
