PCA and Coaching Corps both share a desire to ensure high quality coaches are engaging with our youth, particularly those who have experience in social/emotional skill development and can work with youth to identify, target and help improve deficiencies. With these two organizations working together to ensure the best options for youth, PCA will funnel volunteer coaches to Coaching Corps for best placement in communities with the most need.

Empathy is the ability to understand and share what someone else is feeling without judgement. It is important for coaches to understand how to use empathy in coaching. This resource from Coaching Corps includes tips, terms to use, and other helpful guidelines for coaches to bring back to practice.
