Are you ready to take your leadership skills to the next level? Do you want to pay it forward to the COOP community? If so we are looking for people like YOU to be part of COOP’s Captain Program!

What is the captain program?    

The captain program is an opportunity to pay it forward to the new incoming COOPers. You will learn how to teach, mentor and and coach the COOPers towards launching their meaningful careers. It includes two main elements:

1. Captain Training

January + February: twice a week

These sessions will set the tone for your captainship. There will be a mix of leadership and teaching training with a good dose of reflecting.

February to June: once a month

These check-ins are a great way to get ongoing targeted support, come together as a team of captains and provide feedback to COOP’s HQ team

2. Flagship Program

February to June: approximately 2 times a week

This is when the magic happens and we will count on you to deliver content and guide new COOPers through their experience in a fun, professional and supportive manner.

Who is eligible?
