Here at #RideTheWave we are not only making waves within the coaching profession, we are also delighted to be generating a ripple effect of learning reaching the wider community and making an important social impact.
We award a number of #Social Impact Scholarships on every wave of the programme to those who will use their newly acquired professional coaching skills to enhance the organisations and communities within which they work and live.
We also encourage our coaches to broaden and develop their coaching experience through the Pro Bono and Social Impact Coaching Opportunities we've curated. We support organisations who are working hard to make a difference in the world by offering our coaches to provide their services without charge (or in some cases at significantly subsidised rates) during their training and beyond completion of their professional accreditation, to ensure that the widest impact can be felt and opportunities for development shared with all.
The organisations we have supported so far through our scholarships and pro bono coaching range from local community group to international charities. Here are some of the organisations we've supported so far:
EDI -working with employers to create opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds with a focus on race, gender and social mobility
TheBuild - a community with a core vision to focus on a journey of development and growth for young men from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Your Startup Your Story - a community for people interested in launching a startup, joining a team or building a diverse and inclusive culture. Their mission is to equip diverse talent with the tools and resources to thrive within the tech ecosystem, so that they can contribute to an equitable economy, which welcomes all individuals to participate.
If you would like your own organisation to be included here and benefit from the support of our professional coaches, then do get in touch with us via the contact page.
