Calling MCC, PCC & 2nd Renewal ACC Coaches

Exciting Pro-bono Coaching Opportunity!

ICF-Maryland is very excited to announce its second Ignite engagement, and we are seeking credentialed coaches to join us in igniting social progress in the world.

Through pro bono coaching projects, the ICF Global Ignite Initiative uses the collective power of ICF chapters to accelerate the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The current focus is on Goal #4: Education: ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.

In 2019, ICF-MD joined the Ignite movement by partnering with The Arc Maryland to offer coaching to its affiliated leaders. Each participant benefited significantly from the coaching provided by our dedicated pro-bono coaches, including Mary Ellen Waltemire, Margaret Wilson, Rayna Shroeder, Rich Hansen, and Chris Holmes. To learn more about the impact of our first Ignite engagement, please watch this video.

For our second Ignite engagement, we have partnered with Easterseals DC MD VA, whose mission is to make profound, positive differences in the daily lives of people of all ages with disabilities, special needs, military backgrounds, and their families.  While reflecting on this new engagement, Angie Dabbs, ICF-MD’s Outreach Director, said, “Our chapter’s partnership with Easterseals DC MD VA gives us the grand opportunity to continue making a difference in others’ lives through the gift of coaching. ICF-MD’s member coaches are incredibly talented and passionate, and we’re excited about what’s possible.”
