Our mission is to provide a market place for pro bono and low bono coaching to help clients in our communities who are unable to afford coaching at market rates. We are accepting early career coaches who have completed an ICF accredited, training program as well as coaches who have advanced ICF credentials.
If you would like to participate and provide coaching services, please complete the form on this page and we will get back to you with next steps.
Authenticship connects individuals who will benefit from coaching with coaches. Additionally, coaches can connect with other coaches for barter experience or connect with coaches who are experienced mentor coaches. We are here for ICF trained and/or ICF credentialed coaches who are motivated to continue building hours, honing skills and contributing to the larger community.
We aim to make coaching accessible to everyone. Our belief is that there are many people who are unable to receive coaching because of their financial situation. And many coaches already provide low bono or pro bono coaching. We aim to be a marketplace to bring together clients and coaches and extend coaching’s reach. As coaches we all understand the value that coaching provides to our clients, and the coaches on the Authenticship website want to provide those benefits to individuals who might not ordinarily be able to take advantage of what coaching can provide them.
Outside of employer sponsored coaching, most people don’t have access to (or may not even understand) coaching. Our goal is to provide a marketplace to allow anyone to have access to a good quality coach at an affordable cost to help them better themselves.
We provide you a standard template for contact and bio information. Your listing will allow interested clients to view your contact page, where a prospective client can reach out to you via a form which will send you an email. Once you have connected with a client, all further interactions, contracts, scheduling, coaching, and billing are your responsibility to manage as you would any client who may have connected with you outside of Authenticship.
This service is free to our coaches as we build out the platform and determine what kind of value we can provide to both our couches and clients. At some point in the future we may need to levy a fee (the founders are also working pro bono), but there are costs associated with running a website which we would like to be able to cover eventually.
Authenticship accepts coaches early in their careers. Once a coach has undergone their training, they are required to gain another 100 hours of direct coaching experience before they are eligible for their Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coaching Federation, the gold standard in coaching certification.
We want to help our coaches celebrate their willingness to give back to their communities by providing low bono and pro bono coaching. They are all committed to helping others and the Authenticship badge reflects this. The badge is prominently displayed on your profile page. And you can put the badge on your own website, or elsewhere, such as your LinkedIn page. The badge will link back to your Authenticship profile and allows you to demonstrate your commitment to helping those who would otherwise not be able take advantage of coaching.
