Apply to receive coaching

The purpose of The Coach Initiative is to increase the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations through pro bono (“for the public good”) professional Coaching. We pair leaders and others involved in nonprofit initiatives with professional coaches to provide business, leadership, and life coaching services. Pro bono coaching means dedicated, professional coaches are volunteering their time and energy to coach you through The Coach Initiative. Coaching will be offered to you on an affordable or no-cost basis, depending on your organization’s ability to pay.

You’ve learned more about what we do, and you’re ready to take the next step. Apply now to experience the support of a professional coach and become even more effective in achieving your mission: complete the online form or send an email to [email protected] with the following information.
