• Chile, Cuatro Ciudades

    April 27, 2018. Community Impact Coach Lina reflects on her on-field weeks working with CAC partner Futbol Mas in Chile, alongside the rest of the CAC team.

    Iquique, Copiapó, Santiago y Concepción

    Durante esta experiencia de dos semanas, puedo decir que tuvimos (Nora, Abby y yo) el privilegio de compartir con personas maravillosas de diferentes ciudades de Chile. En cada desplazamiento se observaba los contrastes en sus paisajes, las dunas, el mar, lo árido, lo verde, las montañas, el frio, el calor y esto se reflejó en la fuerza de su gente con el “exceso de pasión” para cada momento.

    Durante las dos semanas pudimos trascender el deporte más allá de la alta competencia (Ganar/Perder), a través de juegos direccionados a temas de impacto social: inclusión, equidad, respeto al otro, interculturalidad, derechos humanos, educación sexual y medio ambiente. Al compartir metodologías se nos pueden abrir oportunidades para ampliar nuestra comprensión.

    Gracias por hacerlo posible, CAC, Ask for Choice, Fútbol Más e Inder Medellín.

     

    Chile, four cities: Iquique, Copiapó, Santiago y Concepción. 
    During this experience of two weeks, I can say that we (Nora, Abby and I) had the privilege of sharing with amazing people from different cities in Chile. At every move you could see the contrasts in the landscape, the dunes, the sea, the desert, the green, the mountains, the cold, the heat and this was reflected in the strength of the people with their ‘excess of passion’ for every moment.
    During the two weeks we were able to transcend the highly competitive nature of sport (Winning/Losing), through games directed at themes of social impact: inclusion, equity, respect for others, interculturality, human rights, sexual education and the environment. Sharing methodologies allows us to open opportunities to amplify our comprehension. Thank you for making this possible, CAC, ASK for Choice, Fútbol Más and Inder Medellín.
  • Introducing the Community Impact Coach Program!

    January 25, 2013.  Coaches Across Continents is proud to announce a brand new initiative for 2013, the Community Impact Coach Program. This is a first-of-its kind program globally which will allow for sustainability, professional development and growth within our partner programs.
    Our unique Community Impact Coach Program will accept qualified local coaches from our CAC partners, and will facilitate their travel to other CAC partners either domestically and/or internationally. While at another partner program, this Community Impact Coach will teach alongside CAC coaches and learn from their fellow Sport for Social Impact communities.

    It is our belief that by creating this network between coaches and allowing local coaches the opportunity to travel, teach, and learn in other locales, that they will bring a unique perspective to the CAC curriculum. We believe that this learning experience will then be brought back to their local communities and allow for continued growth and sustainability with all our programs.” – Brian Suskiewicz, On Field Global Strategist.

    Competition for the Community Impact Coach positions is expected to be extremely high as only the strongest and most dedicated local coaches will be selected. For more information about the Community Impact Coach Program or to receive an application, please contact CAC at:
