Coaching Pathway Program


The Coaching Pathway Program (CPP) is a pilot program that offers coaches who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, a pathway that gets them closer towards becoming ICF certified. Check out our donation page to further understand the motivation behind the program.

The program includes:

  • opportunities to accumulate coaching hours that count as paid for ICF certification purposes through reciprocal peer coaching and ICFWA's University Partnerships program, 
  • mentor coaching,
  • cohort gathering circles that support CPP participants' growth and development
  • ICF membership
2023 being the first year of the pilot program, ICFWA created a strategic alliance with Coaching for Everyone (CFE), a nonprofit that offers ICF accredited coaching training and programming for BIPOC professionals who desire to certify as coaches.

In 2023's pilot program, 10 CFE scholars were selected for the program from a pool of high caliber applicants. To learn more about the program, please visit the links below:
