Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A training curriculum for the Village Life Coach program: A grant proposal
by Comer, Joe, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 52; 1587891
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write grant proposal to seek funding to support the Village's Life Coach Program. The project aims to train and pay a stipend to a group of 10 Life Coaches. The funding will enable the Life Coaches to receive trainings that can help prepare them to take on a mentor role while also giving them skills to strengthen their recovery.

The program has an overall goal to prepare Life Coaches with skills that can help facilitate change with the members they work with and with themselves. This goal will be completed by organizing topics that will be covered in the training, recruiting skilled trainers, and developing materials for the training. To ensure that this training program has fulfilled the overall goal, evaluations will be conducted both during and after the program is complete. Submission of the grant was not a requirement of this project.
