Steve Davis has just hit the web! This exciting new site will serve teens seeking the support and guidance life coaches have to offer, and provide great opportunities for Coaches wanting to work with teens.

The Mission of is to match professional coaches with teens throughout the world. The site helps teens locate a coach, access personal development information, sign up for teleclasses taught by professional coaches, and find links to other sites that help them in their daily lives. TeenCoach also provides resources for coaches, parents, and mentors working with teens. This includes listings for teleclasses, special interest groups (SIGs), books, web sites, and other valuable information. will provide the high quality adult support and guidance many teenagers need as they go for important goals, make crucial transitions, and resolve troublesome problems. We believe that having a personal coach will lead to significant positive changes in the lives of teenagers, both for those who already have positive adult role models and those who don't. is based on the highly successful model developed by Coach University, a virtual university that trains the finest coaches in the business.    


Coach U and Corporate Coach U have over 4,000 students located in over 36 countries. Coach U is the sponsoring company for TeenCoach. All have received professional coach training.

Teens use coaches to set goals, deal with peer pressure, choose a college or vocation, and handle the many pressures associated with entering adulthood. One reason coaching works is that a coach helps you stay in action. A coach is like a small voice saying, "Are you really doing what you want to do? What have you done this week to accomplish your goal?" A Coach is your personal advocate, cheerleader, and friend. They will help you stay on track to reach your goals and dreams.

Teens seeking a coach are invited to go to, and click on "Find a Teen Coach."

Coaches interested in working with teens can click on "Teen Coaching Resources" for details.
