Development Coaching

Connecting young people with caring adults to grow together.

Development Coaching is a program that gives young adults aged 18 to 24 an opportunity to partner one-on-one with caring industry leaders to help guide and enhance their personal and professional development. Development Coaching matches young adults with volunteer coaches from coast to coast based on shared interests and experiences and provides training that supports both coach and coachee to learn from each other and grow together.


Coaching is a rewarding experience for both participants. Reserving an hour per-week to coach is doable and worthwhile. For many of us, it's a way to break out of our familiar bubbles, make new connections and give back in a meaningful way. Programs like this help remove boundaries, open minds, and build connections that make all of us better. - Development Coach

How it works.

  1. Sign up for the program!

    When enrollment opens, please register directly or through your company,
    using the provided sign-up link. Using industry-leading software, the All Stars
    Project will match Coaches and Coachees based on personal and professional
    development goals, experiences, and interests. The All Stars Project offers
    Development Coaching twice a year for extended registration cycles –
    once in the spring and once in the fall.

  2. Make a contribution to support the program

    If registering as an individual, we ask you to make a contribution of $500, $250 or $125 to keep All Stars programs free for our youth.

  3. Attend Development Coach trainings

    Our thoughtfully designed 90-minute virtual trainings will give you the tools you need to build a successful relationship with your coachee.

  4. Let’s develop!

    After your training, you’ll connect with your coachee weekly to co-create goals, learn about one another, and grow together through shared interests. We ask that coaches dedicate at least one hour a week to this partnership. Many coaching pairs stay connected even after the program ends!
