"Nick has also taught me that we have to fight for what we believe in. Life is going to knock you down, repeatedly, and that is just the nature of it all. However, Nick has not only taught me to believe in myself, he has also been there to lend a hand to pick me up off the ground when life knocks me down. Nick has this uncanny ability of being an absolute true friend."
- Johnny, former Student

“Nick has a great personality that makes any individual feel comfortable around him. He has a way of opening someone up and through listening and his ability to give good advice; no one walks away from him unchanged. Gandhi once said to “be the change you want to see in the world”, while meeting with Nick over the past few years, he has helped me come to realize that being that change is possible.  I know I would not be where I am today without his inspiration and guidance. He has pushed me to my best ability and I am now attending a college of my dreams and majoring in a field that I hope to make a positive change in the world with. I have seen the impact that he has not only made on my life but also everyone he come in contact with.”

Nick Petro is a great YOUTH LIFE COACH and mentor for my son. I was initially referred to Nick Petro by a close friend of my mine. My son has been meeting with Nick the past few weeks to strengthen his overall positivity, increase confidence and to learn how to balance frustration with learning. His 7 Pillars for coaching are B.R.I.D.G.E.S (Balance, Respect, Integrity, Discovery, Gratitude, Empathy & Self-Esteem). I really recommend Nick in any capacity with your child...even if just to talk about Life with an unbiased individual. He meets in a very comfortable setting like a coffee house, the beach and even over walks. My son really looks forward to his time with Nick. -Daynan, Parent
