Interested in becoming a coach?


Life coaches will volunteer support to one client, one day a week, for three months

The staff at the Adult Basic Education program will refer students to Fast Forward, who will then do an intake to make a good match between the needs of the client and the area of the coach's focus. The coach/client activities consist of weekly appointments that are generally 45 minutes in length and are conducted over the telephone.

The coach helps the client prioritize, set attainable goals and facilitate follow-through. The coach asks questions that are intended to move a client into greater awareness of personal responsibility and choice.
