Job Coaching

Does your youth or young adult want to work on job readiness skills as they prepare to enter the world of employment? Would they benefit from targeted one-to-one support to increase readiness? We can help. WonderTree offers virtual employment readiness supports with our Job Coach. 

At WonderTree, our Job Coach supports youth and emerging adults to promote and develop advocacy skills and support individuals with pre-employment and employment maintenance skills. Our Job Coach works with clients and families to increase the likelihood of finding employment for youth and young adults where this is their goal.

Areas that can be targeted for growth:

  • Career path and employment

  • Finding a job

  • Self-determination/advocacy

  • Resume Writing

  • Interview skills

  • Building skills to maintain a job/employment

  • Support in identifying how to harness their uniques skills and translate them to the workforce

  • Other areas of need as voiced by the client

Our Job Coaches help youth and young adults that are neurodivergent build their skills and confidence with finding and keeping jobs.

This program is ideal for youth and young adults that are autistic, have ADHD, mental health concerns, Learning Disabilities, or are otherwise neurodivergent.

Individual Coaching

At WonderTree, all supports are individualized. Individual coaching starts with a session to create your coaching plan prior to starting the coaching sessions

Creating Your Coaching Plan

In the first meeting, WonderTree Job Coaches work with clients to identify the specific skills they'd like to target. Each coaching partnership is driven by the youths goals! Our coaches can support youth with the entire employment process for preparing to apply for jobs to maintaining a job and thriving in the work force; or specific employment skills, such as interviewing, resume writing, advocacy, etc. 

In the first session, coaches will review the youths strengths, areas in need of support, and any concerns identified by the youth and the family. They develop an understanding of the youth's current skill set, employment goals of the youth, and create a plan in collaboration with the youth.

At WonderTree, we offer a flexible approach depending on the goals and needs of the individual and family. Our Job Coaching is offered in three structures:

  • Direct Job Coaching support (unsupervised) 

  • Job Coaching support supervised by a social worker

  • Job Coaching support supervised by a psychologist

Coaching Sessions

After the assessment and planning phase, WonderTree Executive Functioning coaches will work with the youth and their families via virtual coaching sessions. Our coaches are knowledgeable, collaborative, and flexible. It is sometimes helpful to start with longer sessions 1 hour initially and then move to 30 min sessions after rapport and initial skills have been developed.
