We're a team.
We build strong, collaborative partnerships with reputable, committed local organizations.
We build lasting capacity by educating local leaders to deliver our proven curriculum, and support them as their skills grow. In turn, these local trainers have a positive, cascading impact in their communities.
Our people and programs are 100% adaptable. We are constantly modifying our tools and supports to fit the unique and emerging needs of each community we visit.
We monitor and evaluate every single thing we do, and continuously improve our programs and systems.
Self-directed learning: the foundation of our work.
Self-directed learners possess attitudes such as independence of mind, confidence in their own judgment, a sense of self-esteem leading to self-actualization and the ability to cooperate and collaborate with others. They are independent thinkers who can define and solve problems, reason logically, engage in the imaginative projection of their own ideas and set goals and strategies to achieve them. They reflect upon experience and learn from it.
Monitoring & Evaluation: Measuring Our Success
Coaches Across Continents (CAC) measures our success in engaging leaders to become Self-Directed Learners and create locally owned sustainability. CAC trains knowledgeable, skilled individuals who are critical thinkers capable of driving change and educating their entire community. Empowering youth and adult leaders, individuals, and organizations yields profound, tangible results that carry over to future generations. Research has shown that developing local leadership is a cost-effective strategy to generate long-term behavior change and community development. CAC’s quantitative and qualitative Monitoring and Evaluation provides key insights that improve communication at all levels, provides for adaptation to local needs, and informs future programs thus ensuring the continual improvement of the quality of services delivered to our partners.
