DC Launches Free Career Coaching Program for 5,000 People Each Year


DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday a new program that provides free personalized career coaching for thousands of residents every year. 

Supported by a $3.4 million investment, the Career Coach DC program includes career assessment, along with career coaching, and connecting individuals to education, training, and job opportunities. 

DC residents ages 18 and older with no four-year college degrees, or those with low to moderate income are eligible for benefiting from the program at no cost.

“We have been very focused on finding new ways to connect DC residents to good-paying careers in DC – and that’s why we’re launching Career Coach DC,” Mayor Bowser said in a statement.

“Everyone needs the support, advice, and guidance of others as we progress in our careers. Having a career coach will be the missing piece some residents need to get their fair shot – to help them navigate the opportunities and programs that best fit their strengths, interests, and career goals,” she added.

Up to 5,000 residents will be supported annually over the next two years, through the Career Coach DC program. 

Virtual, in-person, and hybrid services are available. You can register by one of the following options:
