Volunteer Coaching Programme


The Volunteer Coaching Programme is an opportunity for credit union managers and senior credit union staff to provide direct support to our credit union partners. It is a two week programme whereby the volunteers travel to our partner countries and work directly with credit unions and the national apex body. They undertake a number of credit union visits to review their operations and help them address any challenges, and subsequently report to the Board of the credit union. Following the visits the volunteer coaches host a two day workshop on credit union topics they have identified. Since its inception in 2009, the ILCU Foundation has had almost 20 credit union managers and senior staff generously give their time and expertise to the programme, whereby helping credit unions to help their members in Ghana, The Gambia and Sierra Leone.
