Who is a VOLUNTEER coach?
A Volunteer coach would usually be a trainee coach or a volunteer who wishes to provide voluntary support to the community. He or she may be untrained with the forest school ways initially. The goal for all our volunteers is for them to at least attend 2 FSS trainings and undergo 2 attachments in the time with us. Any individual who went through any basic Forest School Singapore Training (FSST) are welcome to join the volunteer squad. The Volunteer coach will be given 2nd Priority in terms of deployment of the Forest School Singapore programs.
Based on the involvement, contribution and availability in the core team, we will promote volunteers into the core team periodically.
Who is a CORE coach?
A Core coach is usually trained with us in our training program on top of having some basic experience in working with children. He or she has to be comfortable with children and nature, and show a connection with the magic of the forest. The goal for all our core team, are for them to develop and grow during their tenure with us. The moment he or she stops growing or has reached the optimal potential with us, we will offer him or her to move to the Alumni squad.
A Core team coach will be ranked according to their experience, leadership, connection and overall involvement in Forest School Singapore. The Core coach will be given 1st Priority in terms of deployment of the Forest School Singapore programs.
Who is an ALUMNI coach?
Alumni coaches are usually coaches who have shown great competency and ability in the forest school journey, but have difficulty in committing to the intensity of the core team. He or she can also be a Camp Coach, who shows ability but doesn’t want to continue in the core team. The Alumni coach will be given 2nd Priority in terms of deployment of the Forest School Singapore programs.
Coaches can stay in the Alumni squad forever, until they feel that they do not wish to be part of the coaching community anymore. It is a beautiful separation with connection.
