CoachActivism started as a project in 2016 with professional coaches from Greece and Vancouver Island, Canada (ICF chapter).

20 coaches provided their services to 40 coachees: front line refugee workers and independent volunteers, settlement and re-settlement workers, translators, first responders and private sponsors.

Some of the areas in which the coachees experienced improvement were: Self-care, work-life balance, stress management, leadership development, work efficiency, time management.

In 2017 the project was implemented in Greece and Portugal (ICF Portugal chapter).

In 2018 we expanded our reach and support anywhere in the world, with a team of qualified coaches from 10 countries. And it is now a program with ongoing services and support.

It is managed by a Board of Directors consisted by professionals from Canada, Greece, Portugal, Italy and China.

The coaching sessions are held either via physical presence or via skype or zoom. This offer is to help volunteers avoid burn-out, to help their own self-care and to improve with their work efficiency.
