(February 3, 2021) We are excited to announce that we entered into the Well City Challenge and were accepted!
Health Coaches Without Borders has been a completely volunteer effort. We have so much passion for health coaching, health equity, and building a community for our coaches, and we have been looking for mentorship on how to make this passion project sustainable so we can have greater impact.
The Well City Challenge is an incubator for startups who have proposals for innovative solutions that can improve millennial health and mental health in the Philadelphia area.
There were three focus areas 1) Community and Social Connection, 2) Food and Nutrition, and 3) Mind and Body.
We entered our HERO Group Coaching Program into the community and social connection category.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Well City Challenge was looking for ideas that:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅ are rooted in community
✅ prioritize diversity and inclusion
✅ embrace creative approaches to collaboration and partnership
✅ can be piloted at a small scale
✅ have the potential to be replicated or scaled, and
✅ are not overly duplicative of services or programs already in place in the Philadelphia area
Our HERO Group Coaching Program checks all these boxes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are excited to join this challenge and have been diving in to the specific issues that millennials in Philadelphia are facing. We are looking forward to focusing our attention on a specific age group in a specific location.⠀⠀
Starting February 9th, we will be competing with other amazing organizations and startups in the Philadelphia area, and are excited to see what this next chapter holds for HCWB. We will be sharing more about our experience on our social media, and are grateful to the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross Blue Shield for seeing our potential and believing in our mission.
The competition will culminate on Tuesday, March 2nd at 5pm Eastern Time with a public pitch competition. We will be there pitching our HERO Group Coaching Program for the opportunity to win funding and continued mentorship and support to pilot this program to millennials in the Greater Philadelphia area.
