Today, we wanted to tell you about the Shine From Within Youth Mentor Training founded by Amanda Rootsey. If you want to work with youth, this could be a program you would be interested in learning more about. It aims to give you the confidence to run your own workshops and programs whilst building a business you love.

In full transperency, Amanda is a graduate of the Feminist Coach Academy’s Feminist Coach Theory training. She is also a friend of the Feminist Coach Academy co-founders. She co-created the Gentle Business Mastermind alongside our co-founder Nai (note: that’s them pictured together in the image above). Our co-founder Cam has also guest taught in the Youth Mentor Training and been mentored by Amanda as a member of the Gentle Business Mastermind many moons ago.

We have therefore learned a lot about the Youth Mentor Training over the years, have met past trainees from the program, and have spent much time with Amanda talking about the program in professional and personal contexts. We know how much of her heart is poured into the training, how much value it provides to trainees, and how much ongoing support she offers beyond the program. We also know how devoted she is to integrating inclusive, feminist and social justice frameworks and teachings into the training. In fact, we had Amanda on our Feminist Coach Academy podcast to discuss this very topic. You can tune in here.

Therefore, we are proud affiliates of the Shine From Within Youth Mentor Training. You can read more about this below, including our bonus!
