A Life Coach stands as a “role model for life.”

The role of a 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 establish boundaries for those seeking assistance.

Ready4Work’s Life Coaching program equips its Life Coaches with the skills required to support formerly incarcerated persons’ reentry efforts. Ensuring support and success for Clients, a Life Coach works in concert with the Life Coach Coordinator, as well as other Ready4Work staff.
