What is a Volunteer Life Coach?

The role of a volunteer life coach is that of a confidant, counselor, and champion. A life coach helps build confidence and instill personal accountability & responsibility in people, as well as helps to establish boundaries for those seeking assistance. Essentially, a life coach stands as a "role model for life." Ready4Work's Life Coaching program is intended to equip its life coaches with the skills required to support the previously incarcerated with re-entry. Ensuring support and success for clients, a life coach works in concert with the Life Coach Coordinator, as well as other Ready4Work Staff.
