The Coach Connect program is a unique opportunity to bring together what our members love to do—with pro bono coaching opportunities—in support of causes that our members are passionate about. It makes coaching both accessible and available to organizations and the communities they serve.
As Director of the Community Outreach Committee, I am thrilled that you are visiting here to find out more about this program. To learn more about the program, the ways you or community organizations can be involved, please review the Coach Connect Program Overview.
This program was born out of an idea for an ICW event to honour and mark the 20 years of ICF's global celebration of International Coaching Week (ICW). It has since evolved into a permanent community outreach initiative grounded in the following objectives:
The Coach Connect program continues to grow and expand, providing more opportunities to our ICF Toronto chapter members to participate. We want to thank all members who have participated in the Coach Connect program and provided pro-bono coaching to staff and the populations these organizations serve. As a result of your generosity and commitment, we are able to continue to expand our reach. Check out the testimonials from some of our Lead and Volunteer Coaches that have participated in the Coach Connect program.
In September 2018, we will be launching partnerships with 2 new Partner Organizations including 360ºkids and The Canadian Women's Chamber of Commerce.
We are also expanding our partnership with 3 existing Partner Organizations including Bethell Hospice, Ernestine's Women's Shelter and Tropicana Community Services.
For more information on these and all current Partner Organizations click here.
To meet these launch timelines of late September, we will need about 35 to 45 Volunteer Coaches. Please note launch timelines are contingent on sufficient number of coaches signing up to participate. Claim your spot as a Volunteer Coach by Thursday, September 20, 2018.
