Whether you have a passion for football, are a keen runner or just want to help coach children in their sports lessons, you can make a difference to young people's lives by volunteering on a Projects Abroad Sports placement.
Volunteers will be responsible for making sport available to all. This placement is ideal for anyone with a passion for sports, regardless of previous coaching experience.
In developing countries many children are not given the same basic opportunities as the rest of the world. One great way of addressing this issue is by introducing sport within these communities.
Sport provides both mental and physical benefits. It also teaches important life-skills, such as discipline, team-work and communication. We aim to create a fun and enjoyable learning environment, allowing participants to form good social relationships and to facilitate a positive path for development. Regular sports lessons and matches can have a really positive impact upon those from impoverished areas.
There is also the opportunity to teach sport in schools. Many of the schools in which we work are understaffed so the children do not have access to such activities. You will be very well received and the children will be eager to learn from you.
You do not need to have previous experience to get involved in this project - the key is enthusiasm! We accept volunteers of all levels of experience and you will be supervised by a local sports coach.
Whichever sports placement you choose, Projects Abroad will assist you along the way to ensure both volunteers and students get the most out of each experience.
