• CAC Team Prepares for 2016

    January 13th, 2016.  Coaches Across Continents is a global office. With most of us typically in different time zones, our opportunities for in-person staff meetings are few and far between. Because of that, this past week’s second staff Zenith, affectionately dubbed Z-Dos, was an incredible opportunity to do some much needed bonding and bring everyone up to speed on how CAC is stepping into 2016.

    In 2015 we worked in 29 countries with 89 implementing partners. From these partnerships we educated and certified 3,842 community coaches, directly impacting 388,576 children in 29 countries around the world. Impact numbers are important but for new staff member Charlie Crawford the strongest impression of joining a worthwhile organization came from the hours spent discussing the model CAC use to promote Self-Directed Learners. The approach is philosophical. The practicality has been tested. After a year of being on the field, our 15 staff came together with what they had discovered and shared their successes and challenges.

    As we go forward, our partnerships with local programs bring year-round organizational development that help empower communities to question harmful traditional, cultural, and religious practices. Creating a safe space for these discussions is how we believe real change will come. As we write, CAC has a team in Haiti and 2 more heading to Mexico and Kenya. Looks like it’s back to the global office.
