Sports

Volunteer on one of our many sports coaching opportunities and get active, see a new part of the world, and share your love of sport with disadvantaged children in low income communities. Teach a variety of sports such as surfing and soccer in South Africa, Costa Rica and India!

 

Besides the fun, excitement  and the  physical and mental benefits regular exercise provides children, it also teaches many life-skills such as the importance of teamwork, communication and discipline, fighting depression and improving concentration.

 

No matter whether you are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make an important contribution to the physical education of disadvantaged children around the world.

 

If you are studying, speak to our Country Experts about receiving academic credit. Our Programs don’t just give you hands-on practical skills, but can also contribute towards your university or college qualification.

 

 

Our volunteers can find themselves working with children from a range of age groups at local schools, care centers or orphanages. Our projects aim to provide these children with a safe environment with encouragement, mentorship and socialization. By offering a sports education to these children, we can help provide a much-needed distraction from more negative aspects of their lives, as well as offer them a route out of poverty and a path of excitement and promise.
