Our impact How we help Meet, Joel Why did you apply for Coach Core? I signed up to Coach Core to use a year to give back. Along the way I started to understand that all the opportunities I’ve had, have been down to somebody else paving the way. Coach Core is the perfect opportunity to honour the sacrifices others have made for me, when they saw something in me that I couldn’t see in myself. And all this gratitude is what inspired me to do this apprenticeship. I always take pride in what I do and I want to leave behind a legacy. What better way to do so, than to be involved in a course that qualifies me to coach for a charity whose whole purpose is to facilitate rowing in less privileged communities? Where do you see yourself in the future? I will have completed my apprenticeship, and aspire to be a full time rowing coach for LYR. I also want to continue to develop myself as a coach, learning from others within and outside of this company. You can learn to row, or join a boat club with LYR.
