The physical education project is a great way to use sports as a tool for helping the development of children from underprivileged in Ghana.  

As a physical education coaching volunteer, you will work on children sports project, provide soccer and physical education training for the children and youth who would not normally get the chance to play sports.

Your presence alone will bring more children out to take part in the sports.

Sports helps fight depression, aids with better concentration, teaches the fundamentals of teamwork, respect for rules and can be a great boost to individual confidence. Since this project is mainly in the afternoons, it is best combined with another project like Teaching. Volunteers will organize after school sports sessions for children and the local community on the village sports pitch.

Teaching sports has a wide range of benefits that will improve the health, fitness and well-being of the children. You become a positive role model to these children and youth through coaching sports to help encourage teamwork and team spirit, improve concentration and increase their confidence.

Along with the sporting activities, volunteers will organize social discussion weekly on various topics like child labor, literacy, malaria, personal hygiene, STDs, peer pressure and teen pregnancy. This is an amazing opportunity for volunteers who would like to share their love of sport through coaching sessions, teaching your sports skills to the children while immersing yourself into rural tropical Ghanaian life.

The project needs volunteers with skills in physical education, coaching, leadership, and discipline and would welcome any volunteer with youth counseling experience. You can combine sports with weekly sessions to discuss social issues relative to the needs of the children. Join our community sports coaching program, share your skills and contribute to a new future for underprivileged children.
