What is a life coach for kids you might ask?

As a life coach for kids, you help children learn the essential mindset skills for developing self-esteem, confidence, resilience, self-leadership, and so much more - using the power of coaching stories!

And children need our help more now than ever!

Adventures in Wisdom has certified hundreds of coaches in over 30 countries, giving new coaches all the content, tools, and training they need to successfully coach kids.  We would love for you to join us if empowering children will help you do your work in the world! 

Just like a basketball coach helps children develop the skills, confidence, and ability to thrive on the basketball court, a life coach for kids helps kids children develop the skills, confidence, and ability to thrive in life.  Using the power of mindset skills!

How does life coaching help children?

  • 10-year-old Michael had a lot of anger and when he fought with his siblings he said, “I don’t want to be here.” The work he did with WISDOM Coach, Inna transformed his life and his family dynamic. He is now a well-adjusted and happy high school student.
  • When a young girl labeled herself as “shy”, WISDOM Coach, Delia, helped her find her voice, become confident in school and reach out to make friends.
  • 9-year-old Scott was dealing with anxiety and fear from changes in school due to the pandemic. WISDOM Coach, Tara, helped him work through those challenges and find hope and happiness.
  • A 7-year-old boy diagnosed with ADHD learned about respect using the “Hearts and Marks” story and activities with WISDOM Coach, Jean.
  • An 8-year-old girl was struggling so much with fear and anxiety, that she was getting physically ill and avoiding school. WISDOM Coach, Jean, developed a “Resilience” program for her that helped her recover, and transition from primary to middle school.
  • A 5-year-old boy was afraid of water after a pool accident. Working with WISDOM Coach, Tara, he learned to “slay dragons” and overcome his fear.

You can watch videos of these WISDOM coaches sharing these stories in the WISDOM Coaching Works section below.

Who can become a WISDOM Coach?


Anyone! WISDOM Coaches come from all walks of life, but they have three things in common:

  1. They feel pulled to help young people
  2. They love personal development and mindset work
  3. Working with children helps them fulfill their purpose

Their most common backgrounds are:

  • Educators and childcare professionals - who see a gap in children’s education and want to help children learn essential social and emotional skills needed to thrive in life – helping children develop a “growth mindset.”
  • Life coaches - who are passionate about children and seek a proven model for helping people at a much younger age.
  • Counselors, therapists, and social workers - who want to help kids BEFORE there is a mental health crisis – helping children develop resilience and coping skills.
  • Parents, grandparents, and volunteers - who value personal development skills and want to share these skills with kids.

Could this be the flexibility you are looking for?
