Sports Short-term Specials
Projects Abroad volunteers can get involved with coaching sports on a Short-term Special project. These are specifically for volunteers aged 16 to 19 and run on fixed dates. Sports are extremely popular throughout the world and many children and teenagers are eager to participate and develop their skills. Our volunteers work alongside local coaches in clubs and community sports projects, teaching sports such as football and athletics. You can take part in many aspects of sports coaching, from running practise sessions to refereeing matches. The aim is to get children involved in staying fit and having fun.
