Current roles

Volunteer Coach

Empowerment Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to supporting vulnerable immigrants and migrants who face unemployment and discrimination. Our vision is a world where individuals empower each other to live their best lives. Our mission is to provide underserved groups with access to resources that improve their socioeconomic situations and promote independence and inclusion in society.

As a team, we are deeply committed to the people we serve. We understand the importance of helping individuals avoid the downward spiral of depression and hopelessness that often accompanies long-term unemployment. Our goal is to change the mindset of our clients and serve as a sounding board to help them discover and pursue the job or career they have always wanted.

Our coaching services are provided through a mix of online and in-person meetings. As a volunteer coach, you will be crucial in helping our clients address their immediate unemployment situation while addressing them as whole individuals. In addition, you will serve as a sounding board and advisor, assisting clients to overcome any obstacles that may be holding them back from achieving their goals of returning to the workforce.

At Empowerment Foundation, everyone deserves access to the resources and support they need to thrive. By volunteering as a coach, you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of typically overlooked and marginalized individuals. Join us in our mission to promote independence and inclusion in society and help individuals realize their full potential.

Requirements & Qualifications:

  • Coaching certification with ICF or other legitimate coaching body
  • Demonstrated experience in working with multicultural individuals and teams
  • Confident and empathetic personality
  • Tolerance for individuals from diverse backgrounds
  • Strong team player with excellent interpersonal skills

At Empowerment Foundation, we are passionate about helping underserved individuals achieve their full potential. Suppose you share our drive and passion and possess the above qualifications and administrative responsibilities. In that case, we invite you to join our mission to empower individuals and promote social inclusion.
