CARE-Ready™ Training for Mentors Who Work with Ex-Offenders and Recovering Addicts

Pennsylvania, USA ---Chris and Carol Green continued their latest efforts to produce more CARE-Ready™ Life Coaches as they launched a new life coaching certificate class at Sound Community Solutions, Inc.

Also known as SCS, this organization was founded by Mr. Vladimir Beaufils (pronounced Bo - fees), who is an ex-drug addict who spent 4 years in prison due to his addictions. Upon release from prison, he found himself in Harrisburg, PA in 1993, where he started a miraculous journey in the world of human service. He founded SCS and has since produced an army of mentors who help others who, like him, are ex-offenders or recovering addicts.

"Vladimir Beaufils is a name that is synonymous with success, integrity, professionalism, and outstanding results based on evidence-based and proven practices," stated Coach Chris Green.

"We came across his radar at a time when he was looking to improve and add more to the training that he provides for his mentors and staff. We are extremely honored and humbled that he chose us, and trusted us to train his people in life coaching."

As affiliate members and International Statesmen with iChange Nations™, Chris and Carol Green have partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International to offer an accelerated, ministry-accredited life coaching certification program. Their collaborative purpose and mission has been, to offer leaders, working in under-served communities, high-quality tools that empower and equip them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.

The mentors in this first class for SCS are far from being novice in human service. Most have been involved at some level in the field for 15, 20 and 25 years. Therefore, the Green's approach to introducing life coaching at SCS is that they aren't providing new information, but simply a new or fresh way to work with people.

The first session with the Greens always features the establishment of the foundational principles and beliefs upon which the entire coaching program is built.

"At the end of tonight's class," explains Coach Carol "we asked for 'take-aways' from each student. The response was remarkable as each mentor revealed that they were greatly impacted in the first session. We can hardly wait to begin giving them the tools that they will add to their already well-packed toolkits."

As the world's leading producers of CARE-Ready™ Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green teach and train community, government and education leaders, human service organizers, business visionaries, and neighborhood dreamers how to be much more effective by embracing the principles of CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy) in their professional and personal lives. They LISTEN to people, LIFT people and LAUNCH people. Then they equip and empower them to do the same for others.

Many coaching, mentoring and community outreach programs employ what is known as a "deficit model" of working with people. That's where you focus on the problems (deficits) of a person, and then apply a set of pre-determined, cookie cutter steps and treatments to address their issues. The deficit-based model is what many well-meaning Helpers use, but it rarely works long-term, leaving Helpers wondering why their clients fail to break the cycles of addiction and recidivism.

However, CARE-Ready™ Life Coaching mirrors the principles found in the proven, Best Practice strategies of Strength-based, Solution-focused models. CARE-Ready™ life coaches are trained to connect with people in order to build a relationship/ partnership that empowers the client; thus allowing the client to discover the solutions that will work best for them.

Also, while many coaching programs focus on how to target potential high-paying affluent clients, and high-paying speaking opportunities, the Greens train, equip and empower Care-Ready™ Responders and Coaches, who are willing to take on the most often overlooked people of society; those who live in under-served communities, who can least afford, but benefit the most from professional guidance.
