Sea Change Mentoring | Mentoring and support for expat teens

Sea Change provides short-term guidance and professional mentors to third culture, global nomad and expat students in high school and university

Developing tomorrow’s global leaders
We identify and enhance the skills protégés learned during their international childhoods and apply these skills towards leadership and career opportunities

Evidence-based mentoring
We help protégés develop coping skills and support networks to navigate reverse culture shock and other risks that can come with having a globally mobile childhood.Our professional mentors serve as a consistent form of support, guiding young proteges towards their personal, academic and career goals.

Sometimes you just need a little advice. We answer students’ toughest questions and connect them & their parents to our carefully vetted network of professionals and resources.

Training and Lectures
Engaging, interactive seminars for parents, teenagers, college students, counselors, youth advocates, school leaders and relocation professionals
