The Black Canadian Coaches Association (BCCA) has announced the launch of the Black Female Coach Mentorship Program (BFCMP). In partnership with the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), the pilot mentorship program seeks to create equitable opportunities for Black female coaches in Canada.
A national call for Mentee Applications is now open to women who identify as Black, Biracial, or Indigenous and are aspiring or current sport coaches. Applicants from all sport backgrounds, regardless of age, sport, or coaching experience, are invited to apply before the October 26 application deadline.
The Black Female Coach Mentorship Program focuses on three main objectives:
- Providing Black female mentorship;
- Advancing coach professionalization amongst both program mentors and mentees; and
- Providing a sustainable model of formalized mentorship that increases accessibility, support, and leadership development for Black female coaches in sport.
You can find the link to the application form here.
