Live with other volunteers, working alongside local staff
Volunteers on this project connect with children from underprivileged backgrounds via the medium of sport, combining physical education with the promotion of health and social awareness.
The schools in these townships simply do not have the resources to provide pupils with any kind physical education so volunteers are able to give local children the opportunity to use sports facilities they would otherwise not have access to. Bringing their passion for sport to townships on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth, volunteers take coaching sessions, run matches and organise tournaments. However, while the focus is on sport, the priority is on developing personal life skills among South African children, promoting health and social awareness and getting children involved in a positive activity.
Volunteers must love sport! No coaching qualifications are required.
If you wish to coach swimming, then you must possess an RLLS life guard qualification. As swimming pools are outdoors and are unlikely to be heated this project is only available during the South African summer months (October – April).
