Abstract:
Social capital is concerned with the resources that individuals, community groups, institutions and organizations derive from their participation in networks and associations for social change. In this context, this article is aiming to explore dimensions of social capital activated through Social Coaching initiatives. This intense associative experience is relevant as it includes the emotional dimensions of social networking and relational capital experiences for social change. It aims to advance a more conscious and responsible knowledge-based citizenship, with a new set of collective values, agreements, and profile. These social coaching initiatives actually inquire how a different social construction of a nation can be triggered. Following those perspectives, this article has been built around a recent experience of ontological social coaching in youth groups in the Northern Mexico city-region of Monterrey. These youngster are seemingly aiming to play a leading role as knowledge citizens in their communities by telling a different story in this intensely challenged borderland.
