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 ex-offenders’ 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.
