Still Expanding: Over 100 Certified CARE-Ready Life Coaches Across Ten States


Pennsylvania, USA --- Professors Chris and Carol Green, the founders of the STEP Forward Life Institute and owners of C and C Connections, LLC, hosted their second and final CARE-Ready Life Coaching® Certification graduation ceremony of 2022, in a powerful and impactful live virtual event.

“Congratulations to our new CARE-Ready Life Coaches," commented Chris and Carol Green, whose coaching and consulting business serves as the organizer and facilitator of the training. "This was one of the most engaging and interactive groups that we’ve ever had. These women were absolutely amazing."

The newest CARE-Ready Life Coaches® completed weekly coursework, submitted reflection presentations to express how they were each going to meet the challenges of implementing their unique coaching models, created personalized life coaching field manuals, and successfully passed an online exam. They worked through personal challenges, participated in extended class conversations, scheduled additional office appointments with the instructors, and encouraged one another in their individual journeys of process and discovery.

The newest CARE-Ready Life Coaches are: Tracy Boldin, Vikki DeClue, Jasmira Hunter, Audrey Swann, and Ilecia Voughs.

The online ceremony featured congratulations and encouragement from Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Coach, Amethyst Roberson (CARE-Ready graduate of Fall 2021).

"The most important thing is to be the kind of coach that people can trust."  said Counselor and Coach Roberson, speaking virtually to the new coaches. Find the niche that represents clients that are like you, Be the person you needed one year ago or ten years ago. Be who you needed as a kid, fighting to survive and understand the world. Be a life coach that can be real, be raw, and be you! 

People need to know that you are human and have been through tough times, too. Let them know that you are willing to help them; be there for them and guide them. When people know that you are authentic and genuine, they will be more likely to open to you and trust what you have to say! 

Take time to understand their way because the truth is, if they made it to you, then maybe you are a pit stop, a listener, a lifter of someone’s head, and a launching pad for the down and out. In this role, you will have the opportunity to help others decide, delete, delay, delegate, and diminish what no longer serves them."

With the successful graduation of this class, Master Life Coaches, Chris and Carol Green have now trained and launched 105 CARE-Ready™ Life Coaches and 38 CARE-Ready™ Responders, who are disbursed and embedded in 40+ organizations, businesses, agencies or ministries across ten states including: California, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

“The C.A.R.E. Ready Life Coach Certification Program has been one of the best courses I have taken," newly certfied coach Ilecia Voughs shared. "I have been able to learn new skills , relate what I’ve learned to my own life, put it into practice, and create my own meaning out of what I gained from the course. I started the course curious and unsure, but I am leaving the course with a confident knowing and blueprint of what I feel God has placed in me to do.

I value the insight and experiences of all the ladies that I was in class with, and look forward to seeing how God continues to move in their lives going forward. I want to thank Toni Green for her support, assistance, and friendly reminders when we needed them.  I would also like to thank our instructors, Chris and Carol Green for their guidance, wisdom, and leadership throughout the class, as well as during individual coaching sessions. We did it! Congrats to everyone!"

The Greens, through their online institution and coaching business, partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International (UGCSI), I Change Nations™, and Fruitful Life Network, Inc, to offer this accelerated, ministry-accredited life coaching certification program. Their collaborative purpose and mission has always been, to equip leaders, working in under-served communities, with high-quality tools that empower them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.
