“The objective of this course is to equip individuals on how to be an effective community coach.

Participants will:

  • Increase knowledge of the principles and practices of community coaching.
  • Reflect on and increase self-awareness of roles in different groups.
  • Identify community coaching styles and personal philosophy.
  • Deepen the capacity to coach community groups in a variety of situations.
  • Build a network of colleagues to support continued learning and practice.
