In case we haven't met, I am Convu's founder, Marc Roudebush. The mission of Convu is to make compassionate listening available wherever and whenever it is needed. You can learn about the Convu Story here .
The intention behind this fundraiser is to make Convu's peer coaching platform fully inclusive.
Convu's Nonprofit Initiative kicks off in January 2021. It will train representatives from 12 nonprofits to establish a sustainable, self-renewing peer coaching program in their community or organization. It will also help Convu learn how to become scalable, accessible and relevant to a wider range of communities.
We are seeking tuition funding for 6 of the 12 Peer Coach Mentors. Candidates complete an application which asks about their organization (including its impact, culture, and readiness to use peer coaching) and themselves (including their listening and coaching skills). They participate in a 16 week remote-learning program that is suitable for full time employees. And finally they are supported in establishing a peer coaching initiative in their community or organization. The tuition for each Mentor is $1200. Learn more about Convu's 2021 Peer Coach Mentor Training Program.
If Convu's values and mission appeal to you, you can pitch in! You can encourage candidates to apply (just share the above link with them) by December 15. You can be in touch and share your insights, comments and suggestions. Or you can make a contribution to support a Nonprofit Peer Coach Mentor. (Small print: Convu has not yet been granted its nonprofit status, so your contribution is not tax deductible; however, 100% of the contributions received by Convu will be applied to Mentor Scholarships.)
Thank you so much for reading this and for your support!
P.S. Donors who give $1000 or more will receive a free coaching session with Marc Roudebush. Donors who give $500 or more will receive a coaching session with a selected Convu Mentor.
