Coach persons experiencing homelessness towards career success!

What is Back on My Feet?

Back on My Feet is a national nonprofit organization that uses community support, physical activity, and essential employment and housing resources to empower and uplift persons experiencing homelessness towards lives of self-sufficiency.

Check out our national website here.

How does it work?

Through commitment to three early morning community walks or runs per week and participation in various career readiness programs, members gain the skills, resources, and network needed to set and achieve meaningful employment, education, job training, housing, and financial goals.

See our program in action here.

What is a Career Coach's role?

Career Coaches work 1:1 with members as they set and achieve meaningful goals. They provide positive encouragement and tangible support to promote career readiness and achievement. They may:

  • Help build or revise a resume
  • Support in preparing a budget
  • Guide the goal setting process
  • Mock interview
  • Support in job searches
  • And more!

Do I need any special skills?

Nope! Back on My Feet Career Coaches come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing diverse perspectives and skills to support members from various backgrounds themselves. An initial orientation and ongoing training will be provided to Career Coaches, and Back on My Feet staff is always on deck to answer questions!

I'm in! How do I get started?

All Back on My Feet volunteers must attend a 30-45-minute orientation and return the signed community guidelines before interacting with members. In addition, because the Career Coach opportunity is 1:1, Career Coach volunteers must attend a second orientation where they'll learn the ins and outs of their role. Back on My Feet uses the Golden platform for opportunity sign-ups.
