Type of Event: Business Coaching Day (BCD): Business Coaching Days are great ways to meet like-minded volunteers and many talented, ambitious Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs). These events begin with some powerful icebreakers and continue on with one-on-one career coaching activities and empathy building activities. These events build not just marketable employment readiness skills but more overlooked components of human health in the criminal justice system; conversations with our volunteers enhance EITs' self-esteem, aspiration, and sense of hope. As a Defy Volunteer, you will join a group of passionate, purpose-driven professionals at Monroe Correctional Complex, a State Prison 20 mi North of Seattle, to spend the day providing valuable feedback to Defy Entrepreneurs-in-Training (EITs). In the previous Business Coaching Day the EITs worked on their resumes, cover letters, and interview skills. This time, you will be helping them vet their initial business plan ideas and practicing their first pitches. You will also engage in powerful empathy building activities, and support as they prepare for success when they reenter the community. More information will be provided closer to the date.
Time: Volunteers must arrive at facility at 7:30am and the event will conclude by 2:30 pm.
