|Coach a developing credit union overseas
Credit union coaches are well rounded and experienced credit union generalists, able to offer
advice and assistance on all aspects of primary credit union management.
To be considered for this program you must be:
· A Canadian citizen or permanent resident eligible to work in Canada
· In good health
· Willing to travel to remote areas and be open to rudimentary living standards
· Willing to share your experience upon return to Canada
· In possession of a valid passport
CCA sends over 30 volunteer coaches to Malawi, Uganda, Ghana and Mongolia each year to help credit unions work through organizational challenges. CCA credit union coaches wear two hats when they take up their assignments: one as seasoned professionals sharing knowledge and skills with the credit unions they visit; the other as communicators, gathering and shaping the stories they will eventually tell colleagues, family and friends when they return to Canada.
Why get involved?
The CCA coaching program allows volunteers to be immersed in credit unions and their local communities. It provides an amazing opportunity to reinvest years of expertise in developing credit unions.
"[Thank you] to CCA and John Julian for developing such an amazing program that I have seen first hand is making a difference in the lives of others" Heidi Hyokki, Manager of Procedures, Interior Savings Credit Union.
