Do you want to advance access to mental health support, educational equity, and social justice? Join our fight to make trauma healing services accessible to all youth. We're a nonprofit on a mission to empower youth of color to heal from trauma from systemic oppression.
We provide personalized, proactive mental health coaching over text message to teens. As a coach, you become someone our students can count on. You implement our Empathize-Normalize-Stabilize coaching framework to help youth build positive coping skills for managing traumatic stress. We're not crisis response - we check in with youth proactively each day, reaching them on their good days and bad days. Your role is at the core of what we do.
Note: You do not need a licensure or clinical background to be a coach. We take coaches through 15 hours of our robust training program on evidence-based practices and our coaching model. Coaching is done on our secure web portal that coaches log on to from their own laptops/computers, not on coaches' own personal cell phones or from coaches' personal numbers.
