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

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.
