This training introduces and describes theories, ideas, and tools from coaching,
counselling, and advocacy. It encourages participants to work with others in a spirit
of honesty, empathy, and empowerment.
The training can be effective for everyone in their own personal growth and
development and to support others to be the best they can be. It is designed to
support staff and volunteers as they move towards a model grounded in empowered
support and coaching.
Fully applied, these tools and skills can provide long-term benefits for the whole
team and can foster resilience and independence in the families they support, both
during and beyond their Home-Start experience.
