Introducing Mentor Coaching:

This intimate and unique mentor coaching program created by personal development trailblazer – Michelle Marie King is designed to provide flexible and individualized support that meets our client at any stage of their journey.  We work with young adults ages 15-28 from across the globe. Our coaching topics range from normal everyday situations like time management and budgeting to some of life’s greatest challenges like drugs, sex and anxiety.

Our highly trained mentor coaches are far from average; they go beyond simply listening and providing a pre-packaged answer. Our mentors are personally matched with each mentee to ensure a successful, positive relationship. They share their own relevant life experiences and strive for the co-creation of solutions with each one of their mentees.

Because, simply put, making money is NOT our top goal. We want every teenager & young adult to be able to have a mentor and to feel fully supported through every step of their journey. We all deserve someone in our corner no matter where we are in life. The greatest reward for our mentors is in knowing that they had a hand in transforming someone’s life for the better.
Once you are assigned a mentor, you will get access to your private coaching board, 24/7 access to your mentor and access to over $5,000 worth of Positive Presence curated and created tools and resources.
e use Zoom as our tele-coaching platform.
Each mentor coaching session usually lasts a minimum of one-hour, but sometimes goes over at the discretion of the mentor if needed.

We understand that true and lasting growth cannot happen overnight. Each recipient starts off with a six-month minimum coaching commitment because we need that length of time to establish a positive and personal relationship with our students and our students need that time to develop their tool kit.  Our goal is to always get our students to independently live a healthy, positive self-fulfilling life using the tools, resources and life-skills we instilled before the end of the program. Average clients stay with their mentor between six months and two years.     

Our primary age range is 15-28 years old simply because we have found that students within this age range are most open and able to do the type of introspection work we are encouraging, however, we have worked with students as young as 10 years old and as old as 52. We believe that everyone deserves to connect to SELF and as long as you can communicate effectively about yourself to your coach – we are able to support you in that discovery!

Our mentor coaches are trained to help with ANY problems that you wish to discuss confidentially including sexual orientation, sex, drugs, goal setting, finding and building positive relationships, emotional intelligence, relationship to self, spirituality, and many more! 

Absolutely! We offer up to four sessions per month if both the mentee and the parent feel that amount of support is necessary. This can be assessed during our Enrich & Empower meetings leading up to solidifying your participation in this program.

One of the most common misconceptions about life coaching is that it is therapy in disguise — or, worse yet, therapy from an unlicensed practitioner. In reality, life coaching is truly its own unique service designed to help the recipient achieve success and fulfillment in any and all areas of life.

The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. In this sense, therapy focuses on the past and on introspection and analysis, with the hope of resolving past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.

The difference between a life coach and therapist is that a life coach sets clients up with short & long term solutions for positive growth. Through life coaching, a client works with a coach in order to clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors and then create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of life coaching takes the client’s current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action-based from that point onward. A life coach enables the recipient to take control of their life and take action to steer it toward their goals.

Our form of life coaching is a truly customized experience for the people and families we work with. For some of our mentees, we are a big sister, a motivator and/or an accountability partner, and for others we are a true coach pushing them out of their comfort zone and mentoring them on topics they to aid in their personal growth and future success. Our coaches are trained to be a chameleon in the way they coach. This customized support makes this a particularly special experience for the people we work with.
Because we are not medical practitioners, we do NOT take insurance. However, we are able to take HSA Debit Cards as form of payment. In some situations, we’ve written to an HSA Provider explaining how our program is mental health related.
All of our coaching is done Face-to-Face via Zoom. This is to protect our coaches, students and families at this time. In the best of times, we believe this ‘tele-coaching experience’ allows our students to gain a broader perspective of life and support from mentors across the country.

At Positive Presence we believe that each individual deserves a mentor coaching program that is as unique as they are! In that sense, there isn’t just ONE Positive Presence mentoring program, there is a different, personalized version for every individual we work with while still maintaining our core coaching P.I.L.L.A.R.S as outlined below.

  • P)rotect: We provide a shield of validation and reinforce authenticity, self-esteem and positive self-talk. 
  • (I)nspire: Our mentors inspire their students with their own anecdotes of success, failure, relationships & more. 
  • (L)isten: We follow a client-led approach and always listen and empathize FIRST. 
  • (L)ift: During hard times, our mentors offer emotional support needed to encourage a more positive mindset. 
  • (A)bide: Our mentors provide a fully attentive, non-judgmental, unwavering source of support and abide by that code AT ALL TIMES.
  • (R)ally: Our entire Positive Presence team from our Founder to our admins uplift and empower our students through the good and the bad times, instilling strength and resilience while celebrating victories.
