Testimonial JR Reynolds 935
Overview Details

 

ACSTH LogoIncreased impact and sustainability in community work are no longer aspirations, but requirements. In a global world, local issues now have regional, na­tional, and international effects.

Community work must stay at the cutting edge, creatively serving all people in a complex modern era and consis­tently adapting to benefit the whole. The Community Coaching Certification supports professionals in doing just that.

The first of its kind, the program draws on the power of coaching to increase healing, regeneration, and change within communities in need. The approaches taught have proven successful in individual, orga­nizational, community, and even national and in­ternational spheres. It’s now time to take these skills deeper and more purposefully into our communi­ties, so that they can thrive and we can all thrive as a result.

The 9-month certification program offers critical skills of value to any organizational or community system. Certification enables graduates to help employers and communi­ties with their advanced competency as community lead­ers, coaches, activists, and direct service staff of community programs.

Graduates will be able to:

  • Navigate complex situations using a coaching approach to gain insight and clarity.

  • Realize lasting solutions to the toughest problems.

  • Build and support leadership development at all levels in a community.

  • Implement change more rapidly and effectively.

  • Generate authentic and grounded action.

  • Create cultures of connection and collaboration.

  • Balance individual interests with the whole.

  • Magnify the value of diverse perspectives.

  • Design innovative systems, projects, programs and campaigns that incorporate a coaching approach.

What Our Graduates are Saying

Spacer-5x5.gif

Community coaching opens up space to bring our full selves, connecting more deeply with what really matters in our community, and taking rooted action towards our vision. —Jennifer Lin

 When I first began my coaching journey I was shy, had low self-esteem and never spoke up for myself. I had goals but I never thought I would achieve them. I would silently tell myself; I am too old, too big, too dark! The funny thing is, I am an interventionist and my job was to push and encourage students. I did a great job with them but I was hurting on the inside. Through these courses, I have literally done a 180. I first used my coaching skills on me—I had to call out the power in myself. I live by my coach's stand and I have exceeded my goals I had at the beginning of the class. I am coaching teachers, pastors...and I am not done! —Merrilyn McMiller

Testimonial Pailin Chirachaisakul 935

The most valuable outcome for me is that I am more open. I used to be controlling and judgmental but I’ve made a complete 180 degree change in the way I coach and train. Now I dive in, take risks and create a space where we can learn together. I care deeply, bring in more curiosity and I’m more vulnerable, which helps clients deepen their own awareness. —Nancy Smyth

 I have never in my life experienced learning so empowering, joyful, rewarding and life changing. The course is the best thing that has happened to me in years and worth every penny! I highly recommend participating if you are interested in contributing to change that matters. —Daniela Herzog
