Wellness opens the door to a community’s future.
We need a radical solution to make sure everyone gets through.
Put wellness on the map
Schools, civic organizations, faith-based groups, and businesses are mirrors of the community
They are also the community’s hope for the future. But obesity, inactivity, tobacco use, stress, substance use, and other lifestyle factors threaten that future. And no one is immune. That’s why putting wellness on the agenda of every community organization benefits everyone in the organization, and beyond.
Build capacity into the community
Empower community members to help themselves, individually and together
IWE Wellness Coach training programs help communities meet their health and wellness challenges head-on. Our training empowers organizations to marshal their unique strengths and resources so each person can make their own changes for better health and wellness, and then, help others around them.
A role for everyone
IWE offers training for everyone
Regardless of educational achievement, age, or occupation, everyone can help make the change process for greater health and wellness a little easier. The Wellness Coach Level 1 is the place to begin because it gives novice coaches the skills to model wellness by example and lead peer activities to engage others in wellness. Wellness Coach Levels 2-5 is designed for community members who want to provide others with more ongoing, intensive support, offer a specialization, and provide coaching services for a community institution or within the community at large.
Training for real life
Flexible online training schedules
IWE’s Wellness Practitioner training programs are online, so they can be done anytime, anywhere. IWE’s learning environment also provides plenty of opportunities for real-time interaction with faculty and collaboration with others. “Learn by doing” is fundamental, so students apply new skills and knowledge in real life from day one.
