Project Details

KickStart Ghana believes that sport should be accessible to all, because it provides opportunities for global socio-economic development. It is an international language that young people the world over can understand. It has the power to break down barriers that exist in politics and religion.

We rely on volunteers with sports coaching qualifications and sporting experiences to enhance the sporting opportunities available for the young people of Ghana to fulfill their potential and have every opportunity to succeed. Our specific objectives are:

·  To encourage young people to live an active lifestyle, enjoy sports participation and to inspire them to achieve their athletic potential.

·  Training coaches and trainers for quality sports development at schools and clubs across the whole region.

·  Empowering and upskilling young people to pursue career in their chosen field- thus increasing education levels and rates of employment in their community and the wider region.

·  Giving young people opportunities to develop sense of social responsibility and collective effort for inclusion and growth.

·  Building and promoting intercultural working relationships as our international volunteers work alongside Ghanaian facilitators, trainers and coaches to share experiences, knowledge and ideas.

·  Focusing on increasing female participation and building self-esteem in girls through sports participation.

·  Engaging young people towards positive choices. Promoting productive, happy lifestyles and therefore reducing the chances of the next generation turning to crime, or being at risk of exposure to drugs, negative choices, or boredom and apathy.

Majority of KickStart Ghana’s sports coaching are based on helping with PE lessons in schools during term time, and our work with Dynamo FC. Dynamo has now grown into a five team club, with U12, U14, U17, Mens Team and Girls team as well.

Each of the teams has specific training days and volunteers will be responsible for organising training activities for the players as well as looking after and maintaining club equipment.

Volunteers are responsible for planning, carrying out and reviewing coaching sessions on week days. During term time our sports volunteers help out with PE sessions during instructional hours and coach specific school teams other than football in local schools during club coaching time in the afternoon. Volunteers will arrange sporting based community outreach sessions for children in the holidays.

Requirements: Volunteers must have either a basic football or other sports coaching qualification (e.g. FA Level 1 Badge in Coaching). Volunteers not holding a qualification but with extensive previous coaching experience will also be considered. References will be required. Please read the volunteer specification before applying.
