SINGAPORE YOUTH COACHING (CoP)
The coaching profession today continues to build and establish its applications in different domains of our society today. Coaching as a practice with youths today is definitely one of those domains where many professional coaches operate both professionally or through various volunteer space. So as coaches continue to serve in this space, impacting the lives of all these young people, how can we as a coaching profession come together to learn, grow and innovate together so as to meet the growing demands of our young people? How can coaches today continue to strive towards improving and increasing their area of expertise and knowledge so as to create a definite impact in our leaders of tomorrow? It’s not an easy task to challenge to overcome but we certainly hope to tackle some of it through the Youth Coaching CoP Sessions.
Objectives of this CoP: 3 C’s
• C - Collaborate with each other – Providing an avenue where coaches can come together to leverage and synergize on each other’s strengths
• C – Community building – Rallying and supporting this group of coaches doing this work

With a background in teaching and education management, I have turned to coaching to continue enabling growth, self-empowerment and success in the field of education. As an educator for the past 12 years, I have accumulated a wealth of experience and gained important insight in understanding the areas that parents, teachers and school leaders need to explore and expand to provide better support for healthy learning. I now coach parents, teachers and educational leaders who aspire to create positive learning environments that meet the well-being and educational needs of those under their guidance.
