Back on My Feet is seeking dedicated, outcomes-oriented volunteers to coach members ("clients") towards career success!

What is Back on My Feet? Back on My Feet is a national nonprofit that mobilizes the power of community support, physical activity, and essential employment and housing services to empower persons overcoming homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency!

What is a Career Coach? A Career Coach is an individual who works 1:1 with Back on My Feet members to set and achieve realistic education and employment goals. The Career Coach provides critical social support and guidance, with the support of Back on My Feet staff, to members as they break down barriers and achieve self-sufficiency/

Do I need any special skills or experience? No! Back on My Feet provides a comprehensive orientation and shadowing session before pairing volunteers with members and provides all resources necessary to facilitate goal setting sessions. We do ask that Career Coaches commit to at least one early morning walk, jog, or run with their chosen team per week, so as to build community with the members that they are working with.

Mission Statement

Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources.

Description

Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way our society approaches homelessness. Our unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength, and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes, and new lives. For all in need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope. For all with the capacity to serve-volunteers, donors, community and corporate partners-we seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.
