One of ICF NYC’s strategic objectives is to provide pro bono coaching services within our local community to be in service of those in need. For many coaching professionals, coaching is about contribution and working in service to greater pursuits, whether at the individual organizational level, or at even larger scales. ICF’s pro bono programs ensure that coaching, which can often be seen as a privilege out of reach to those without resources, is more readily accessible to those who could benefit from it. Beyond our pro bono programs, ICF NYC is committed to raising the profile of coaching in the community through volunteer service work and advocacy.
Our work promotes the coaching profession’s value and contribution and offers our coaches wonderful opportunities to serve our community, often with organizations and individuals who are not familiar with coaching and who may not be able to afford it.
"Volunteering has been personally fulfilling to my humanitarian driver and affirming to why I pursued coaching. Serving as a pro-bono coach enables me to bring the power of coaching to people who might not otherwise get the benefit from it in their lives." -Ben Colvin, CPCC, ACC
"It's been a very good experience creating programs that have a true impact on our community. The power of our practice is truly felt by those who have not had the chance to have a coach and to see the tremendous turn around in the client makes me know that the work we are doing not only is needed, but is wanted and embraced in the local community. I look forward to creating more robust and sustainable programs that the community can come to expect." - Angelo Moultair
