Stand Beside Them
About Stand Beside Them
We are coaching veterans from Iraq/Afghanistan (post 9/11; OEF, OND, OIF) and their family members and/or caregivers. Coaching sessions between our professional, qualified coaches and returning service member/clients are free and totally confidential. If distance or transportation poses a problem, our coaches are willing and able to coach by SKYPE or telephone.
We provide coaching in:
- Career development, including skills assessment, and resume/interview preparation
- Relationships (strengthening relationships at home or work)
- Business development
- Veterans benefits (helping with comprehension and navigation of the system)
- Other reintegration issues that might cause a veteran to feel stuck and unable to move forward
Coaching sessions usually last between 45 minutes and an hour, although the first consultation may last a bit longer. At the initial consultation, the coach will describe standard operating procedures for the coaching, explaining the structure of the meetings, cancellation or other policies, and you will converse about the area(s) you feel you could use some coaching in. By the end of the session you and the coach can decide whether you feel comfortable and would like to move forward and set the time and place for future sessions. The coach will give an estimate of how many sessions might be required to achieve a specific goal or goals. All that is expected of you is to be present at the agreed-upon time, and willing to do some work, including follow-up tasks assigned to you by the coach to help you progress toward the realization of specific goals. To reiterate: coaching is a collaboration between the coach and the coachee, where the coach serves as a guide, and the person being coached should be present and accountable to do the work to achieve the positive results.
Eligibility: Post 9/11 veterans and their families
