Here are some profiles:

  • Retirees who want to continue contributing to our communities.

  • Education Students training to become teachers.

  • Life Coaches who wish to increase their revenue and their reputations in their community.

  • Retired teachers.

Who would likely work out well as a coach for our youth, our future leaders?

Here are a few possible profiles that would likely excel in this role.

The demographics appear to offer us an excellent source of potential coaches.

  • The ‘baby boomers’ are now reaching retirement age.
  • A percentage of them will be asking ‘what do I do now?’
  • Often the retiree has had a very active life prior to retirement and might feel a lack of purpose and is looking for a new goal.
  • There are many elements to a successful retirement among which are feeling relevant and community involved.
  • Loneliness can be a very large challenge as we age.

It has been my experience that coaching children is wonderful. There is nothing better than having young friends who call you by your first name and even better sing you Happy Birthday.


Those who have become qualified in life coaching could find setting up coaching programs for children would:

  • Supplement their incomes
  • Enhance their reputation in their community.
  • Contribute and have a positive impact on their country’s potential future leadership.

Those who are currently training to become a teacher can benefit as it enables them to:

  • Gain practical experience of working with youth.
  • Learn skills on how to communicate with parents.
  • Enhance their classroom management skills.
  • Create a positive reputation of working with youth.
  • Enhance your teaching portfolio.
  • Set themselves apart from the other applicants for teaching positions.
  • Grow personally as youth-adult partnerships have a positive impact on adults involved.

Some teachers have retired. It appears many of them have found the bureaucracy a major challenge.

  • Coaching of children can offer them a way to do work with youth without the bureaucracy.
  • They can utilize their skills to effectively assist children with the critical skills to cope with future challenges.

Above are some potential sources for youth coaches. There are certainly other groups as well.

  • What do you think?
  • Are there other groups that may find coaching of youth rewarding?
  • Please comment in the box below.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Wishing you lots of love and laughter.
