A Life Coach is a mature, caring adult committed to devoting focused, quality and consistent time to the participant. Like a football, or basketball coach, life coaches are there to provide encouragement to participants as they navigate the barriers of society, post-release. RISE partners with five organizations, four of which are faith-based organizations.
The Life Coach, either individually or as part of a mentor group, typically meets with the mentee at a location in the community or an agreed upon location. Flexibility is a critical component of this relationship. Both parties, the life coach and the participant find times to meet being respectful of the other’s commitments. The term of the match is one year.
