Sports Volunteering Projects Abroad
Wherever you travel in the world you will always find people who love sport. Sport brings people together and helps to build strong communities, as well as contributing to the creation of healthy, happy individuals. Sport can also provide a much-needed distraction from more negative aspects of people's lives and, to many people from disadvantaged backgrounds it can offer a route out of poverty and a path of excitement and promise.
Regular and organised sports coaching can have a very positive impact on children. As well as the obvious physical and mental benefits that regular exercise provides, there are many inherent life-skills to be learnt, such as the importance of team-work, communication and discipline. And, of course, there is a great deal of fun and excitement to be had along the way!
Projects Abroad has just launched a dedicated sports website. Click for more information on volunteer sports projects.
"The programme really gave me a good opportunity to improve both my coaching and personal skills. This was largely due to the level of responsibility I was given. I also felt that support was always on hand if I encountered a problem. Consequently, I feel I achieved a lot during my placement."
