School sports Coaching

Depending on your confidence and skillset, you can assist teachers or coach your own sessions. Either way, you will be making a real difference.

Volunteering is the absolute focus of our trips. We work with privately set-up and run project schools which are in desperate need of support; volunteers travelling with us provide this. You will have the opportunity to either assist teachers in coaching sports or deliver your own coaching sessions for the children. The children are very eager to learn and relish the opportunity to experience different coaching methods. They love football above all, but any sports are welcome. Your challenge will be delivering coaching sessions with limited resources and facilities.  Not only will you provide coaching support, you will have the time to interact with the children, talk to them and just do simple things like playing games. Interaction of this sort is more meaningful than many people would imagine, as a large number of the children in the area we work do not have the family structure and guidance that we, here in the UK, are accustomed to. Each day, you will visit our partner projects, which are privately set-up and run primary schools, and assist with teaching and building work (whatever the projects have highlighted as most needed) and you will have the opportunity to coach sports during the lunch hour and even before or after school hours, should you wish. Outside of your volunteer work, we give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of Kenya, with a weekend adventure and a number of different cultural activities. This is a life-changing experience and we are sure that you will return from your trip a different person.
