In Ghana, Sports have the powerful ability to draw people together, even beyond international borders.

For many young people in underprivileged areas around Ghana, however, opportunities to participate in creative play and sporting events are rare.  Sports Coaching volunteers on our  programs provide invaluable opportunities for young people to participate in sports and acquire the numerous benefits associated with playing sports. 

Some of the various benefits include finding an inexpensive outlet for physical energy and friendly competition, getting exercise, gaining confidence, forming friendships and a sense of community, seeing the positive consequences of perseverance, and learning the value of hard work and discipline. Volunteers run drills, teach strategy, and provide encouragement for young players, while promoting healthy habits and serving as positive role models for young, impressionable individuals.

What to Expect

With any volunteer project, the nature of volunteers’ work begins with the needs of the community. The specific tasks volunteers carry out depend on the project and most importantly, the needs of the individuals they are helping.

Sports coaching volunteers have an impact on their host communities by interacting daily with local children, students, young adults, and their adult leaders in schools, sports clubs and youth organizations.  Sports are an inexpensive way for youth around Ghana to have a creative physical outlet while staying active and having fun.

Ghana sports coaching projects give volunteers a new perspective on Ghana and on the role of sports in culture, while broadening the horizons of the young people they coach and providing support to the local organizations where the young people spend their time.

Volunteers with an interest in sports coaching, physical education, or simply a desire to make a difference in the lives of young people in communities in Ghana are well suited for a our volunteer project in sports coaching.

Our sports coaching volunteers are enthusiastic about being immersed in the hands-on Ghana of athletics and about making a difference in the lives of the children and young adults they spend time with and coach.

Successful sports coaching volunteers are energetic, patient, creative, fun, and able to adapt to variations in playing fields or courts, available equipment, and varying skill levels.
