Prepare Teens With The Confidence, Skills, and Social-Emotional Intelligence They Need To Be Happy, Fulfilled, & Successful.
Have you ever wanted
someone to talk to your teen for you
that they would listen to?
Someone who can relate, speak their language, and talk sense into them?
Times have changed and they continue to change rapidly. Today, the emergence of the internet and social media has made teens more susceptible to peer pressure, negative people (haters), and bad information ultimately leading to bad choices with no personal responsibility or accountability for their actions.
“Very well family” has now found that teens lack social and emotional skills, inspiration, and motivation which has led to unprecedented amounts of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and in some cases suicide.
Parents and educators are having an extremely difficult time mentoring and teaching our teens the skills they need to find joy, fulfill their potential, and create success.
Here is What the Experts Have to Say
Do Teens Really Need a Mentor?
Research shows teenagers are not wired to listen to their parents. It's not necessarily a different message they need, but a different messenger. Mentoring can improve academic performance, school attendance, graduation rates, and attitudes. But, the power of a mentor runs deeper than numbers may indicate. Messages of empowerment — “I believe in you,” “you’re worthy of this opportunity,” “I think you have what it takes,” “it’s okay to try and fail,” — help recognize and unleash a teens potential, which can change the trajectory of a life.
50% College Acceptance
A mentor increases a student’s likelihood of attending college by 50 percent. Teacher mentorship nearly doubles the odds of a student attending college.
Drugs & Alcohol
Youth in a mentor program are 46 percent less likely to use drugs and 27 percent less likely to use alcohol.
50% Better Choices
A teen with a mentor doubles chances of making good choices, experiencing success, and reaching their full potential.
Teen Authority, Mentor, & Coach
Over the past 5 years, Richie has spoken with hundreds of thousands of teens in 48 states at over 460+ schools. He understands the climate and culture teens are living in.
Richie found his first passion, playing football, but he was altered drastically after his parents got divorced and failed 5th grade. He faced obstacle after obstacle, but 13 years later turned that dream into reality by earning a full D1 football scholarship at Ole Miss standing a staggering 5’7″ and a hefty 150 pounds. He was able to accomplish this dream because he had one mentor who believed in him and helped him believe in himself.
He then went on to play Arena Professionally, wrote a #1 Best Seller, opened a franchising 24/7 functional fitness facility, and every year he travels the globe working with hundreds of organizations, colleges, and high schools delivering inspiring, entertaining, and actionable keynotes to teach teens how to overcome adversity, set & achieve goals, build social and emotional skills, and become more resilient. Now, he also mentors teens 1-on-1 and in group settings to help teens implement what they have learned.
My Why and Commitment
“I know what it feels like to have a dream, but have self doubt, haters, and feel so far away from achieving it. I know what it feels like to be bullied, anxious, depressed, and lack the social and emotional skills needed to succeed. Luckily at the right time in my life, I found a mentor who gave me an opportunity, taught me how to break through these barriers, and ultimately helped me achieve my childhood dream. He believed in me and helped me believe in myself. Now, I want to do the same for teens. My commitment in creating this program is to make a deeper impact in the lives of teens and will be my true legacy for a generation searching for direction.”Richie ContartesiOwner
