B:E Receives 2016 International Prism Award Honorable Mention
The International Coach Federation (ICF) recognized Beyond Emancipation (B:E) for our innovative use of coaching, coach training and its positive impact on current and former foster youth! Learn more on ICF’s website which includes a B:E case study.

B:E was nominated for this award by Johnny Manzon-Santos, a B:E donor who is one of our founding coaches. Johnny says “It’s easy to lift up B:E whenever I talk about the healing power of coaching. B:E is making coaching relevant and accessible to young people in ways that are truly innovative. Everyone – participants, staff, community partners and the institutions that young people have to navigate – is transformed by engaging in the processes and practices that B:E is serving up. B:E deserves greater visibility within the global coaching sector and beyond. So folks around the world can learn from, and be inspired by, what’s ultimately cooking at B:E: authentic connection, an unwavering belief in each person’s capacity to grow and speak their truth, and showing up as partners in each other’s liberation.”
We are so excited about this honor and we are deeply grateful to all of the coaches, staff, youth and funders who have contributed – and who continue to contribute – to the design and evolution of our CCRW Coaching Model.
