Coach with Jobs Partnership
More than just life and job skills training, Jobs Partnership provides career onramps for the unemployed and underemployed in our community. The goal is to give students a biblical understanding of work and help individuals find a career, not just a job, so they can provide for their families.
In January, First Pres will support the next semester of Jobs Partnership students. One of the keys to transformation is the team who provide support and encouragement to the students. Come serve and be a part of a powerful example of the integration of faith and work. First Pres is looking for 10 coaches to serve this Spring.
What does a Coach do?
Coaches are the lifeblood of the LifeWorks Training, personally encouraging, mentoring and guiding the Students to reach their God-given potential. We train each Coach to walk alongside his or her Students. If you are passionate about career/personal development, have a strong relationship with God, excellent interpersonal skills, and enjoy leading small groups, this may be the role for you. Time Commitment: 1 training day + 1 evening/week for 12 weeks.

What is LifeWorks Training?
"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 for one evening per week, twice per year at regional training sites around Central Florida. The first night of class Students are paired with volunteer Coaches, who serve as their mentor and advocate, helping them develop a Career Pathway and restoring hope in the process. Throughout the course, Students 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 Students 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....The Way Up."
