Through the eyes of the volunteers: HCIC workshop ‘Project Management’

Updated: Sep 7, 2022

Ever thought about joining the Heart-Centered Impact Coach trajectory?

As part of the training course for Heart-Centered Impact Coaches (HCIC), HCLF gave a project management workshop to the group currently in training on Saturday, 5th of March 2022.

The skills training workshop was titled Project Management: guiding youth to successfully plan and manage projects. The training included an introduction to project planning, project life cycles, and methods HCLF uses during our Impact Factory session, which is the youth brainstorming and project planning activity.

The HCIC candidates put what they learned into practice by coming up with projects of their own, using the methods they just learned about and their own previous knowledge on planning a project. This is one of the trainings that young adults are required to follow to become future HCICs.

The workshop falls under our Heart-Centered Activities which aims to support adults and professionals (who work with youth) in their personal and professional growth. The heart-centered approach is the core of the programs we offer: connecting people to their authentic selves and cultivating impactful skills and behaviors to lead from the heart.

Heart-Centered Impact Coaches are HCLF's peer coaches who support us during different youth activities. We will be starting the process of training new Heart-Centered Impact Coach candidates with our next Heart-Centered Activity 'I AM' workshop taking place Saturday, 9th of April 2022.

Are you curious about what the journey to becoming a future Heart-Centered Impact Coach looks like?

For this edition of “Through the eyes of youth”, we will be giving Aish Winterdal a chance to express how she is experiencing the beginning stages of becoming an HCIC. Since November 2021, Aish has been supporting us as a Co-host in Impact Café and has been participating in HCIC activities with the intention to commit to becoming a future HCIC.

Here’s what she had to say about her experience so far!
