What is a Volunteer Life Coach?
Life Coaches serve as an additional life-line for returning citizens, serving as as a confidant, counselor, and champion. A life coach helps build confidence and instill personal accountability and 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 returning citizens with reentry. Ensuring support and success for clients, a life coach works in concert with the Life Coach Coordinator, as well as other Ready4Work Staff.
