The Coach Role
Our Coaches are at the core of what we do. Coaches use our web application to provide youth with personalized coaching over text message. Daily text conversations follow our framework, Empathize-Normalize-Stabilize, to empower youth to build positive coping skills. As a Coach, you become someone our students rely on. You also collect real-time data that we use to drive systems change at the school, district, and city level.
Our service is not clinical and coaches do not need a license or clinical background. Our coaching model is grounded in evidence-based practices for managing traumatic stress, including Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Positive Psychology. Coaches go through our rigorous training program (20 hours). Coaches receive ongoing support throughout their time with MindRight.
This is a remote, virtual volunteer role. When you are serving as a coach, you are supervised in real-time by a MindRight Coach Supervisor - a licensed mental health clinician.
