Become a volunteer, Make a difference
Together, as one ICF, we are pursuing a powerful vision: ensuring that coaching is an integral part of a thriving society and every ICF Member represents the highest quality of professional coaching. As ICF Switzerland Members, one thing that unites us is our shared, passionate belief in coaching’s power to impact individuals, organisations, communities and the world positively.
We are looking for volunteers in many areas to help us reach a wider audience and have an impact in Switzerland. This does not need to be a regular commitment; perhaps you have a particular skill or a few hours to share each month or can help on a specific project.
Take a look at the opportunities and by selecting the relevant "Click if interested" button, complete a simple form to show you are interested. You can make multiple selections if you are interested in more than one area. Once you have submitted your interest, one of the board members will get back to you to discuss further.
