Coaches For Community

Welcome to the C4C community. Thank you for your interest in the Coaches for Community (C4C) initiative.

Main focus for the 2018:

  1. Creating awareness and understanding of coaching amongst the nonprofit sector leaders
  2. Orientation of the ICF members to the nonprofit sector
  3. Facilitating pro - bono coaching projects


Our "Coaches for Community" (C4C) initiative is to serve the larger community as coaches and in turn engage ICF members by providing them with opportunities to serve the community. We are working with a variety of non-profit organisations and charities. We aim to partner with key stakeholders of the sector as we deliver this initiative to the sector.

Characteristics and criteria of a C4C Coach:

  • Being open and willing to work with the coachee and the non – profit organisation, respecting their differences and constraints.
  • Be able to commit to the project from start till end, especially the kick off sessions that are mandatory to attend for project brief/orientation.
  • Being helpful to the coachee and their organisation. Many of the coachees aren’t familiar with the coaching process and framework and thus they may not know what to expect out of the sessions.
  • Be open to change of schedules. Have an understanding and discussion with the coachee on how to work around such situations where needed. Be creative and understanding.
  • A current member of ICF, with an updated coach profile which we will guide you to prepare for it.
