Sports Education

Volunteers will instruct the children in how to play new and different sports that they are can bring from their own country.

You do not necessarily spend all your time teaching in a classroom. The Sport Education program consists of volunteers working in local schools to improve children's knowledge of sports and teaching foreign sports and games to the children. They also educate children on general fitness, health and wellbeing in addition to their regular lessons at the school. It is up to the volunteer to plan lessons and design the teaching of their sport program.

Children are extremely enthusiastic and willing to learn, however, past volunteers have found it important to be prepared if they are to teach the children foreign concepts and ideas (such as a new sport). While soccer is extremely popular in Peru, many volunteers have found it rewarding to teach children different sports (or popular sports from the volunteer's home country). If a volunteer wishes to do this, they must plan ahead and often must bring the required materials and equipment themselves, as it is highly likely they will not be available in local stores and shopping centers here.

Typical day

While our programs are flexible and can be fit to your requirements, an example of a typical day is as follows:

7:30 AM Breakfast with the host family
8:00 AM Volunteer leaves home and takes public transport (or in some cases walks) to the project with other volunteers and program staff. You will be given a plan for your work. There is usually a tea break and a lunch break. Work and hours is dependent on the project and location that the volunteer is participating in.
2:00 PM-5:00 PM Work at the project usually ends. The volunteer at this point is free to visit and explore the city. When you first arrive you will also have the city tour in the afternoon and the night tour during the evening. You may also want to spend additional time with the children at your project up until the late afternoon.
7-7:30 PM Dinner with the host family.
