Coaching for Health Volunteer

Are you interested in volunteering with Pain BC’s Coaching for Health Program? We are currently seeking volunteers to participate in the upcoming volunteer training session.

Delivered by volunteers, Coaching for Health is a free telephone coaching program designed to help people living with pain learn self-management skills, regain function and improve their well-being. People with lived experience of pain are encouraged to apply, as are those with similar work experience who would like to support those living with pain through an anti-oppressive and strength-based health coaching program.

The Coaching for Health training will be approximately 40 hours long, with a mix of self-guided online training and facilitated (live) online training sessions. The first online module will be released January 26, 2023.

Live training sessions will be scheduled as follows; please note that some of the following times may be adjusted depending on program and volunteer considerations:

  • Thursday, February 9, 2023: 12:00PM - 3:00PM
  • Thursday, February 23, 2023: 12:00PM - 3:00PM

Participants must complete a criminal record check.
