BeSomeone Life Coaching Internships for High School and College Students
Ready for an Internship that truly makes a difference?
Welcome to BeSomeone - a FREE peer-to-peer life coaching network offering opportunities for teens and young adults to connect, support and empower each other on their journeys to success.
We understand that being a teen can be challenging, and that's why we're on a mission to address important issues like mental health and academic disengagement – with YOU as a crucial part of the solution!
Who are we looking for?
We need passionate and caring high school and college students who are eager to be personal coaches for younger teens.
As a coach, you will be the guide, motivator, bridge builder, praiser, taskmaster, presenter, and active and sensitive listener for one or more teen clients.
If you have a warm, outgoing, caring personality that can help draw out shy and withdrawn peers - then this role was made for you!
“But wait” - you may say - “I’m just a teen. I don’t know enough to coach anybody!” Not true!
All of us have the wisdom to help coach younger students – you’ve already been through what they’re going through now. And we’ll provide you with comprehensive training and support:
🎓 You'll receive training from a professional clinical psychologist, ensuring you have the knowledge and skills to make a positive impact.
💼 Our coaching curriculum, based on 'How to Navigate Life' by Liang and Klein, is designed to help you bring out the best in your peers.
🌟 Explore self-improvement discussions based on the Five BeSomeone Talents, guiding you and your clients towards growth and success.
All within a safe, confidential and caring environment that you’re helping to structure.
So if you take interest in helping you and your peers to grow and become the best versions of each other - this unique opportunity is perfect for you!
What are the responsibilities?
As a life coach, your main responsibility will be to schedule and regularly attend a weekly 50-minute meeting with either one or more teen clients. You’ll also provide valuable feedback to BeSomeone, helping improve our service, agendas and content.
The minimum commitment is around one hour/week per client. You choose your schedule and how many clients you want to take one, allowing for great flexibility.
One additional hour each week will be held for a debrief staff meeting of coaches.
BeSomeone operates through our community Discord where you'll be part of a supportive team, ready to make a lasting impact on your peers.
Longer-term as you develop into a more senior coach there is the potential to help onboard and train new coaches, develop new content and activities, and influence the future direction of the organization.
