Become a Virtual Job Coach

If you are unemployed and looking for a job, the AARP Foundation WorkSearch Virtual Volunteer Job Coach program may be for you. The program, which began as a pilot earlier this year, is now fully established and operating out of the AARP Arizona officed in Phoenix. The volunteer-run program is designed to support workers 40+ by offering job and career information, training and related employment services to individuals who are seeking to remain in, or re-enter the workforce.

“As you know, finding a job is extremely challenging in today’s economic environment and can be particularly daunting for older workers, many of whom are having trouble finding the help and guidance they need,” said Cynthia Fagyas, AARP Arizona Communications Director. “By becoming a Virtual Volunteer Job Coach with the AARP Foundation’s WorkSearch program, you can make a real and positive difference in someone’s life.”

Becoming a WorkSearch Virtual Volunteer Job Coach requires a time commitment of three to four hours per week as well as attending a two-day training orientation. Volunteers are reimbursed for mileage and parking while volunteering for the program.

The WorkSearch Program provides job and career information and services to individuals who are seeking to remain in, or re-enter the workforce. WorkSearch provides a variety of services, including interest and ability assessments, skills assessments, information about the local community job market, and connections to online and local training employment opportunities.
