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 areas 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.
