Education For A Changing World
Coaches Across Continents is a global leader in the sport for social impact movement. Our award-winning corporate partnerships and ‘Hat-Trick Initiative’ consist of comprehensive, year-round organizational development and sport for social impact education that focuses on local issues such as: female empowerment, including gender equity; conflict prevention, including social inclusion; health and wellness, including HIV/AIDS behavior change; child rights; vital life skills; and fun. Our key to success is a unique Self-Directed Learning model that is based on our 'Chance to Choice' and ‘ASK for Choice’ curricula that educate people to identify, address, and solve problems specific to their communities. We mentor organizations and empower communities to question harmful traditional, cultural, and religious practices; responsibly choose their own futures; and create sustainable change. Since 2008, we have worked in 37 countries with 304 implementing community partner programs. Overall, we have educated and certified 14,221 community coaches and directly impacted 1,939,316 young people.
We envision the day when all governments, municipalities, schools and communities have the skills to use sport as a social impact tool and make the choice to do so.
Coaches Across Continents uses sport as a vehicle to create Self-Directed Learners who can identify, address and solve problems specific to their communities. Our unique adaptable curriculum empowers people to question harmful traditional, cultural, and religious practices; choose their own futures; and create change.
