I'm looking for a word to describe the role of an adult between facilitator and mentor when it comes to working with kids: someone who keeps the group on task and goal oriented, but who also might support relationship development (short-term) and growth as well. These are good starts, but not quite descriptive of what I need: Goal Achievement Rubber Ducking Coaching-Mentoring
