Do you want to inspire youth?
Do you love helping people?
Have you ever considered becoming a Youthologist?
Youthologists are trained to inspire, equip and assist their clients in creating a happier, more organized spaces, relationships and learning to live a more balanced life based on each client’s personal goals and priorities. They help young people with every topic and area including self-esteem, study skills, room organization, friends and getting along with parents.
As a Youthologist, you also enjoy, study and maintain knowledge of current trends, issues and news going on with youth today.
Youthologists will use the Youthology and Youth Coach Manual, videos and training course to learn Vanessa Van Petten’s amazing process to help youth identify their goals, priorities, stress triggers and areas of desired change. Youthologists will learn how to assess each challenge and then make an action plan based on each client’s needs.
Youth Coaches can offer the Youthology process and may package it along with coaching, organizing, or other services, and set their own fees for their offerings. (Youthologists keep all of their fees.)

Your initial training is conducted through interactive online classroom sessions where you participate and watch videos, forums, assignments, and the manual at the state-of-the-art Youthology Master Program web site hosted by Ning. You may attend “forum classes” and complete your course work when it is convenient for you, work at your own pace, and take the final examination when you are ready.
Once you have been accepted as a Trainee in the Youthology Masters program, you will be given an invite for the online classroom. Upon receiving your invite, you will be able to log-in to the Youthology Masters Program Web site, access the lessons and assignments, watch the video presentations and look at all of our other resources that will help you grow your business as a Youthologist and coach not only how to be one. There are 12 training modules that cover various topics, including the Goal Making Assessment, Study Skills System, the Family Peacemaking process and how to build a successful business as a Youthologist. You should expect to spend at least 1 to 2 hours on each module.
After you complete the training forums, to receive your official certification and begin building your Youthology Coaching business, you must score at least 75% on the final exam. If you do not receive this minimum score, you will be able to review your training materials again and retake the test up to four times within a second 30-day period. We are committed to helping you succeed!
Think back to when you were a high school or college student. It’s likely you had to take some required courses that seemed to have little to do with preparing you for real life. This is certainly not the case with the Youthology Training Course! You will learn how to inspire young people, organize them and teach them to be passionate, while also learning more about yourself!
