Coaches Across Continents is a leader in the sport for social impact movement, and provides process consultancy to community based organizations. Using our strategic resources and knowledge learned from our recently piloted technology initiatives, Coaches Across Continents will engage communities in conflict zones and other unsafe areas in our Hat-Trick Initiative using a Technology Partnership pathway.
This will enable local communities to create learning outside the classroom, educating about locally-identified topics such as conflict prevention, child rights, gender equity, health & wellness, and life skills through our award-winning curriculum and self-directed learning methodology.
This idea will minimize risk, increase scope and scale, reduce costs, decrease carbon footprints, and is scalable and replicable. By working in conflict zones we will be addressing the root causes of conflict, laying the groundwork to develop peace building to violent regions. Peace is a core component of developing prosperity. Finally, this scalable approach reduces the carbon footprint by using technology-only resources and limiting all in-person travel.
To create our Technology Partnership pathways, we will rely on our long-term expertise in the field and our year-round strategic resources. We will look to build an online platform allowing for ease of use and focusing on creating important modules including videos of our curriculum, webinars on how to create creation of women’s and child rights policies, best practices for sport for development coaches, monitoring & evaluation expertise, consultation for organizational development, and more. This online platform will be supplemented by creation of curriculum content focusing on implementing our self-directed learning methodology and module topics from locally-identified modules. The online platform would include video, downloadable documents, and comprehension checks as organizations progress through the partnership and implementation on their own timeline.
Finally, each technology partnership would have a specific partnership manager, who is fully supported by the entire CAC resource team. The Technology Partnership pathway is designed after our highly successful Chance to Choice and ASK for Choice pathways which have been recognized with over 20 major global awards in the past decade. However it would look to eliminate the On-Field portion and substitute it with Virtual Learning.
If successful, we see this as a key part for the future for sport for development process consultancy, and a dramatic increase in the number of organizations, coaches, and children that we are able to impact on an annual basis while still retaining the essential CAC : Partner personal relationship.
