The youth of today face many challenges at home, at school, from friends, and from society. Pressures, stressors and lack of a supportive system can lead youth to make bad decisions and take wrong paths in life, which can negatively impact the rest of their lives.
The saying goes: ''It takes a whole village to raise a child''. We believe that in order to inspire and empower youth, our heartwork is even more impactful when we involve all actors around the youth.
That is why we believe it is important to have positive role models in the formative years of a young person's life: someone who they can look up to, talk to and have as a support system when things get tough.
We aim to create a supportive network of trained coaches, called Heart-Centered Impact Coaches, who can:
Assist and support youngsters during our workshops and seminars
Guide and mentor youth leaders to make positive decisions
Become role models for the youth of Aruba
Facilitate workshops and activities under our Impact Activities
But why become a Heart-Centered Impact Coach?
Enrich your life with meaningful experiences (𝘋𝘰 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘪𝘯 𝘈𝘳𝘶𝘣𝘢!)
Develop new skills and gain work experience
Gain insights towards your personal growth (your values, qualities and competences)
Make new friends and have opportunities to network
Get a certificate
The path to become a Heart-Centered Impact Coach follows different training opportunities. The first of which is a 2-part training called 'I Am'. The I Am training course offers you the opportunity to look at and discover what your purpose and mission is in life, how to identify your values and applying them in your personal and work life, and much more.
Why is it this training course an important first step?
This saying comes to mind: ''𝘍𝘪𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘰𝘹𝘺𝘨𝘦𝘯 𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘬 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵. 𝘠𝘰𝘶'𝘳𝘦 𝘯𝘰 𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘪𝘧 𝘺𝘰𝘶'𝘳𝘦 𝘳𝘶𝘯𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘦𝘮𝘱𝘵𝘺''. It's a cliché, but it's true. Caring for yourself first is often the best thing you can do, in order to help others.
