How JBG Can Help


A life coach can help students explore and define their academic interests and goals. We assess a student’s strengths and target areas for improvement. 


Children and young adults often experience stress as they struggle to navigate life with their family and peers. A life coach can help by understanding their client’s feelings and provide support and guidance through a tough time. 


Life coaches can support their clients as they identify career goals, balancing work and personal commitments, and problem-solving challenging life choices. Through this work, life coaches can help pinpoint areas where career services might be of assistance, as well as help clients identify what programs or certificates would best showcase and compliment their abilities and talents.

College Preparation

Life coaches can provide tools for students to use time effectively, resolve potential roommate issues, care for themselves, and stay focused on short-term and long-term projects. This work may reduce much of the stress associated with starting college by preparing students for the freedom and responsibilities that come with living away from home. 

Life coaches help their clients with intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, helping them better understand themselves and those around them.
