Although the focus is on sport, the project’s aims are far larger. The goal is to inspire young people and teach life skills, developing a responsible youth, as well as bridging social divides and enhancing awareness of a wide range of social and health issues. Essentially sport is used as a vehicle to holistically improve the lives of young people from township communities. As a sports coaching volunteer, you can help provide opportunities for enthusiastic young players to practise sports in an organised and fun environment as well as teaching them personal life skills which will equip them for the rest of their lives! You will normally work with children who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and you will become so much more than just a coach to them. As their mentor, you will lead them on a sports training program as well as teaching parts of a life-skills curriculum designed to be both enjoyable and educational. You may get the opportunity to organise tournaments, holiday camps and various educational activities depending on when you travel and local school holidays. Over the course of your project, you will see the children develop and improve under your guidance, making this an exceptionally rewarding project!
