Disaster Relief Coaching

Positive Presence Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Positive Presence Global, North America’s largest life coaching company for teenagers & young adults, launches Disaster Relief Coaching to ease the mental health impact of the Coronavirus amongst the younger generation.     

Positive Presence Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that exists to help prevent suicide, depression and anxiety caused by societal pressures, natural disasters and community catastrophe.  Through the disaster relief fund, full paid and discounted scholarships will be provided to vetted teenagers and young adults in crisis across the country.  Each scholarship recipient is awarded 6-months of life-changing and life-saving private coaching with a personal advocate.  These mentors help guide their student out of darkness into personal peace and beyond.  

This coaching program was designed to tap into the student’s potentials, eliminate limiting beliefs and help them achieve the greatest version of themselves amidst the darkest times of their life.  The one-on-one private coaching is supplemented with a customized coaching board, personal development workbooks, a resource library, guided visualizations and positive affirmations for continued growth. 

With over 47.12 million teenagers and young adults in our country between the ages of 14 and 24, this program is poised to help as many as it can.  Positive Presence Foundation is ramping up their coaching team, support staff and online tools to keep up with the growing numbers of teenagers and young adults in need during the global pandemic. 

How we are Addressing the Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus has impacted our world, economy and everyday life.  Amidst sky rocketing unemployment, whole city shut downs and alarming death rates, the younger generation is struggling beyond measure.  Now more than ever before this generation is being faced with an onslaught of overwhelming crisis.  Their already high anxiety has been further provoked with closing down their only in person social structures left.  Their mental health is being tested, their education altered and their lack of clarity for the future is beyond strained. 

Michelle Marie King, the Founder of Positive Presence Foundation says about the relief fund, “our young people are grasping for light in a world overwhelmed by darkness.  They desire support, they long for connection, they strive to find purpose, and they crave peace and solidarity.  With positive support, they will not only get through this crisis, they will be better for it!” 

King herself knows the power of mentor coaching. She is a Minnesota-based philanthropic leader, innovative entrepreneur and public speaker who has been blazing the country as a positivity activist and passionate visionary since the age of 16.  “I want to help our coaches maintain income, our students maintain support and our young adults around the globe conquer whatever challenges they’re being faced with during this time, both internally and externally” says King.  “I can help, our coaches can help, Positive Presence as a company can help, and this is how we are deciding to do that.  Together, we will get through this stronger than ever.” 

The mission of Positive Presence Global is to  enrich our student’s lives, empower every young adult with necessary knowledge to combat society’s stress and inspire the next generation to eradicate insignificance.
