Volunteering on Sports Development – Overview
At just about every corner in the World you will find the locals playing sports, but now you can be a part of the team as a volunteer in one of our sports development programs. Athletics have become vital for World’s lowest income communities, as they provide children and adolescents with recreational outlets in neighborhoods that offer young people very few options for entertainment.
Volunteers have the chance to partake in projects that are developed and operated by local organizations and their respective community councils.
Opportunities for Volunteers
Sports have become an essential part of poor neighborhood’s life, especially for children and adolescents. Because there are so few entertainment options for youth in low-income communities, kids unfortunately get caught up in illegal activity to pass the time. That’s why sports development has become a vital outlet for children, because it provides them with friendly competition in a safe and fun environment. And the best part is: these programs are almost always powered by volunteers.

Football Coaching in Tanzania: train young boys and girls at school
Volunteer in Tanzania in our football project. The sports project offers sport activities (mainly football) to 400 children (boys and girls) from several football schools. The idea is to keep them away from the danger through sports and to develop the female football.As a sports volunteer, you’ll work alongside the coaches of the football team to help facilitate daily practices. Additionally, the team will play matches on the weekends, where you will assist the coach. Volunteers do not need to be professionals in sports, but rather have a passion and excitement for this program.
Teaching Sports to disadvantaged Children in South Africa
Go for an African Adventure and teach children as an South Africa sports volunteer.
In this project you will be teaching and helping with sports activities at a primary school situated on the South Peninsula of Cape Town, part of a disadvantaged community.
Your presence is desperately needed as there are only 33 teachers for almost 750 children. Your help with give the children access to more one-on-one attention and offer them the possibility of improving and gaining new skills that previously they would never have had the opportunity to learn.
These children are energetic and enthusiastic and so keen to learn, if you put in the effort there is no limit to what you can teach them.
Teach Football and Basketball
You can help develop their capabilities with more popular sports like football and basketball, or if you’re a guru at bowls or have a secret passion for ballet, bring it on!
Just remember that the school won’t have access to expensive equipment, so you will need to have an imagination and patience to think of creative ways to make sure everybody has fun. Also any old sports gear that you, your family or friends could provide as a donation would make a huge difference, and would be another way of improving these children’s lives.
