Student gets funding for LifeJAM

For Alla Guelber, it’s all about the power of the people.

The MA in Environmental Education and Communication student is in the midst of creating a facilitated process called LifeJAM that will bring together a group of people to help an individual explore, refresh, invigorate and create a vision for a project, a business endeavour or another specific decision related to creating meaningful work.

“LifeJAM is a coaching process that encourages social innovation and finding creative solutions,” explains Guelber, who recently won a third Co-operators Group IMPACT! Fund grant to develop and pilot the project. “Working for social and environmental change is the goal and we’re going to be doing that through a group process that has a multiplier effect. We’re tapping into the power of the community and creating mutually beneficial relationships through which people can share their skills and experience.”
