***2020-2021 Applications are CLOSED.***

Welcome new and returning coaches! Coaching is an important process to extend any learning and it is an integral part of the Golden LEAF Scholars Leadership Program. Coaches work one-on-one with Golden LEAF Scholars throughout their freshman and sophomore academic years and through their summer experience. Our evaluations continue to reflect how highly Scholars view the coaching component. In addition, our evaluations demonstrate that the coaches also grow in significant ways through the coaching process.

So, if you want to make a difference in the lives of young people from rural NC who are the future leaders and change makers, we encourage you to apply to become a coach for the Golden LEAF Scholars Leadership Program. Please click the below link above to apply.

Application Deadline: 5pm, October 23, 2020

Notification of status: No later than November 20, 2020

This is a competitive process and we encourage people to apply who have a passion for, or experience in, coaching and mentoring youth. Coaches are awarded a stipend of $2,200 from the Golden LEAF Foundation for their contribution to the program.

If you have any questions please contact Robert Matthews at matthewsr@ccl.org or Julie Griffin at griffinj@ccl.org with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you. With wonderful coaches, we will have a wonderful year!


Coaches make a 8-month commitment to mentor college-age youth by attending mandatory conference weekend events (two per year) and monthly check-in calls with scholars. They also participate in a new coach training in December.

Through coaching, you will:

Gain access to world class leadership education that you can take back to your home organization in NC

Become connected to a community of people statewide who care about NC

Make a sincere investment in the next generation of NC leaders
