Braven Leadership Coaches lead teams of 5-8 diverse college students through a semester-long leadership and career course at Lehman College, CUNY. Coaches facilitate weekly experiential learning sessions (Tues or Thurs evenings), build a strong team culture, give feedback and coach students 1:1, all while sharpening their own leadership and management skills.

WHO BRAVEN IS SEEKING

Ideal coaches can have anywhere between 2-20 years of work experience and come from diverse personal, academic, and professional backgrounds. It's a great opportunity for promising, early-stage employees to practice leading diverse, millennial teams. It's also a great opportunity for more experienced employees to pay it forward in a meaningful way.

Ideal coaches have demonstrated the below skills and mindsets:

  • see feedback as a gift and are eager to give and receive it
  • have strong group facilitation skills, including clear and energetic communication, active listening, and powerful questioning
  • lead through an asset-based lens and can build strong relationships with young people
  • believe in the leadership potential of young people no matter where they’re from
  • are hungry for professional development that deepens their facilitation, coaching, and management skills
  • understand the power of social capital and are eager to open networks to students
