Course Workbook Cover

Is there someone you would like to help change their life? You can!

Let's refer to that person as your friend because either he or she is already your friend or will become one when you help him or her.

Your friend needs to be the one to take the initiative and be their own agent in order to change their life. View this as a team effort.

And you need to have resources, backup and know-how to give effective help to your friend and enable the change to happen.

To get additional free resources, investigate 30 Actions to Change Your Life on a website by that same name at worknlearn.us.

Introduce your friend to the choices among the Actions and offer to help. Notice that other volunteers help with specific Actions as career coaches, specialists and Christian mentors.

Your help as a friend on a continuing basis may be the most transformative. Your friend may not have anyone else to help. And may not know that help is even available.

Your friend can choose the Actions to take. And set his or her own independent time, schedule and place to accomplish them. You will want to be in touch, probably at least once a week. A zoom call 1-to-1 is a good way to share and encourage progress being made. It approximates face-to-face contact very well when that is not possible.

You can also help your friend recognize where additional help is needed and suggest whom he or she should call.

In your response to this opportunity, please say how you want to volunteer, your motivation and your background or capability. If possible, introduce your friend.
