Volunteer Life and Work Coach

ABOUT THE LIFEWORKS PROGRAM

LifeWorks is like a boot-camp for life and work, with practical, Biblical teaching that transforms the head and heart. The 12-week course meets one evening per week, twice per year, at regional training sites around Central Florida. On the first night of class, Participants are paired with volunteer Coaches, who serve as their mentors and advocates, helping them develop a Career Pathway and restoring hope in the process. Throughout the course, participants have numerous opportunities to engage with our Community Resource Partners, Educational Partners, Employer Partners, and Church Partners. And that’s just the beginning. After Graduation, The Jobs Partnership team provides recommendations and referrals to Partners as the Participants take action on their customized Career Plan. The goal is to equip them, empower them, and launch them into a career-path opportunity that will lead to a family-sustaining wage as they continue the way forward.
