Ghana - Volunteer in Sports Education

Print this page

Country: Ghana,
Type: Humanitarian & Community Development , Manual work / Construction, Teaching & Education, Working with children,

As a participant on this project, you will help train, encourage and develop children and teenagers to become the future athletes from the Eastern Region of Ghana.


In Ghana, interest in sports is a nationwide phenomenon especially when it comes to football. 

Usually, young athletes from Accra and other more wealthy parts of the country are regularly sponsored by their academic institutions, families and sports clubs. 

Those athletes have a better chance of continuing to perform at levels where they can attract the attention of regional, national and international teams. Athletes from poorer regions like the Eastern and Northern region can normally not afford to continue competing at this level due to lack of resources. 

The aim of our sports program is to improve this situation by supplying the high schools of Koforidua with international sport teaching volunteers. You will be involved in both the theoretical and practical sides of sports coaching. 

You do not have to be a sports professional, coach, player or educator to enroll on this program. 

You only need to have a passion for sports and like to work with children and young adults. However, we very much welcome participants who are experienced in a particular field of sports or in physical education to enroll and share their knowledge and skills.
