Youth Coaching helped Stephanie discover her purpose and develop the skills (and confidence) necessary to reach big goals aligned with that purpose—like being a finalist for the Loran Award and TD Scholarship for Community Leaders, launching a successful non-profit, getting into Queen’s Commerce, and obtaining a prestigious internship after first-year.

“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!”

“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 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!”

There are no group classes or divided attention. You have exclusive access to a world-class youth coach, ready to go the extra mile.

We’ve got you covered at every step of the admissions journey with the most comprehensive offering, including:

  • Creating a clear plan and roadmap to manage priorities, prerequisites, supplemental requirements, and deadlines.

We offer different options so you can work on as many applications as you need. All of our coaches are experts in many of the most competitive programs, which means they can help you apply to various programs at the same time.

In rare cases where your coach doesn’t have experience in specific applications, you also have the option to add a second coach.

Please apply and our team will go over all the options during our intake interview so you can choose the best program option for you.

Over 12+ years, we’ve had 1,000+ students get admitted into the world’s top undergraduate university programs with a 70-90%+ success rate.

This includes the top California schools, including Stanford, USC, Cal Tech, Berkeley, UCLA, and more. Outside of California, this includes Ivy League schools (Dartmouth, University of Pennsylvania, Yale University), Johns Hopkins University, and more.

We also help students with Canadian and UK-based programs, including Waterloo, U of T, UBC, Cambridge University, Imperial College London, Oxford University, University College London, University of St. Andrews, and more.

Coaching sessions are done virtually and 1:1 at times that are convenient to you. You will book calls with your coach via the Youthfully coaching platform.

You and your coach will choose how often the sessions take place, which depends on your needs, goals, schedule, etc., as well as the program you’re working on.

Flexibility is a priority. Some students have calls in evenings, weekends, or even mid-weekday during a spare or in summer months.

Yes. Since this is a 1:1 program, it’s tailored to your schedule. Whether you’re only free on Saturdays or you’re going to camp this summer, you and your coach will craft a plan and schedule that works around your commitments.

You can decide when you want to start the program, for how long it goes, and when you meet with your coach. We’ll always work with you to make the program fit into your schedule.

Simply book an intake call.

Please note: we have limited spots in each program and students are admitted in the order in which applications are received.

We only accept a portion of applicants who demonstrate coachability and potential.

We’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. We 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.
