About

Hub coaches are bright, motivated, committed individuals with a strong desire to get to know participants and to give back to the community. They work side-by-side with participants to encourage and mentor them to set realistic and achievable goals, and to help them overcome barriers to meet (and yes, "exceed"!) those goals toward a more comfortable and economically secure way of life.

Hub coaches come from different backgrounds, but share these things in common:

  • Have and use pro-active problem-solving skills
  • Are supportive listeners
  • Are willing to get to know people in need
  • Want to learn and share about the services available to help

Every coaching experience is unique, based on the needs of the participant. A volunteer coach might help write a resume, recommend job skills training, find more affordable housing or child care, recommend changes to a budget or simply provide listening and encouragement.

Coaches need to:

  • Commit a minimum of four hours each week
  • Take part in required training
  • Meet weekly, one-on-one, with assigned participant(s) to help identify needs and set goals
  • Connect participants with services to help them overcome barriers to success
  • Communicate regularly with assigned participant(s) and hub partners
  • Offer hub as a resource to those who may need service
  • Recommend hub as an opportunity for other potential volunteers
  • Share ideas on how to improve the process

Benefits Of Being A Hub Coach Hub provides direct, hands-on experience with a variety of community service providers and barriers to becoming self-sufficient. While volunteering with hub, there are many opportunities to gain and develop leadership skills through interactions with a diverse group of people, office management, public relations and event planning, and nonprofit organization and management.

Hub coaches make a variety of contacts in the business and social services world. Hub coaches make Oshkosh a better place to live and work, one individual or family at a time. Hub coaches transform lives!
