Are you a professional coach who is looking for ways to engage in the community?

We are in high demand for volunteers with coaching certifications and passion for making a difference in nonprofit community by providing leadership, executive, business, or performance coaching to the senior level leaders including Executives, Directors, Board members, and teams. Coaches who have had work experience in nonprofits are encouraged to apply, as many nonprofit leaders appreciate the guidance of coaches who have been in their shoes.

501 Commons provides high quality, affordable consulting, coaching and training services to nonprofits, schools, and public agencies thanks to a corps of skilled volunteers who put their expertise to good use. As a coach with 501 Commons you can help support nonprofits on projects such as:

·              Increased awareness and confidence in leadership abilities

·              Improved clarity and ability to guide the organization toward fulfillment of its vision

·              Enhanced relationships with staff, Board, and others

·              Improved time management and productivity

·              Increased job satisfaction and optimism about their organization

·              Expanded personal and organizational capacity

Our typical coaching engagement is 15 hours over 6 months where some sessions happen in person and others over phone or video conferencing. PLEASE NOTE: We do prefer that our coaches be able to meeting with clients in person for the first and last sessions and most of our clients are located in Washington state.

As a service corps member, you will:

           ·        Be a part of our coaching community with ample networking opportunities.

           ·        Access our online training, resource library, and workshops

           ·        Apply your background and expertise towards supporting the nonprofit community

Additionally, if you are in the process of obtaining your coaching certificate you are welcome to apply. The hours you spend with our clients will count towards your certification.
