RWANDA: Sports Coaching Volunteer Project

Through our sports coaching volunteer project in Rwanda, Go Volunteer Africa is aiming at enhancing the physical, social and emotional development of children and youth in Rwanda. The program provides at-risk children and youth a safe environment in which they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities.

Whether you just love sports or you’re a professional, we have a project for you in Rwanda! No experience required, just a desire to use Sports to help others. Sports coaching volunteers train, play and get immersed into the life of the community. This volunteer project in Rwanda is perfect for gap year, summer holidays, student travel and career breaks.

IN BRIEF:

  • Prepare sports  training modules/plans
  • You will be teaching and assisting in sports trainings.
  • You might be assigned to develop team assignments
  • You will be able to share your knowledge, skills and passion for sport
  • You will learn deeply about Rwandese culture and the country
  • You will do something positive
  • You will make a significant and worthwhile contribution to the local community
  • You will meet new people and make friends for life

Many children in Rwanda don’t have the opportunity to receive proper coaching and they lack basic sports skills. You’ll work with schools and community teams after school. Sports has the power to bring people together. It speaks a universal language and cuts through culture, race and religion.

The sports coaching volunteer project also helps coordinate important educational workshops in areas lacking emphasis in general school curricula such as recycling, nutrition, hygiene, and self-esteem. This is a fun project for anyone who loves working with children and youth.  The youth are very enthusiastic and always keen to learn, play, and interact with volunteers.

Go Volunteer Africa’s Games, Sports and Recreation Program in Kigali collaborates with local communities to promote healthy lifestyles amongst local children/youth through teaching basic skills and tactics of football (soccer) and volleyball, netball, skating and so many other sports.

Given the lack of adequate recreational opportunities available to youth in the slums and semi-urban areas, our volunteering program in Rwanda seeks to provide at-risk children and youth with a safe environment where they can practice these activities in order to make productive use of free time.

In addition, we emphasize important core values like mutual respect, trust, fair-play and self-esteem as well as sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership. Volunteers contributing to this program will plan and lead practices of understanding the sport or game. Working in the heart of the community you can help put a smile on the faces of the children and youth of Rwanda.

You can teach a new sport or add skills to the sports activities our children and youth already know. You can participate in fitness and training of sports for children and youth and you can combine it with another project, like mentoring for slum or village youth.

This project aims to empower the local children youth of Kigali through various sports and games activities. You can combine this project with other community service projects in Rwanda. If you are looking for a volunteer project with a difference, then join meaningful volunteer project in Rwanda.
