About

Sports Coaching and Community Work in the Andes

This varied sports coaching and community work placement in the Andes aims to integrate boys and girls into sports, fostering not only sporting technical expertise but also key values around team work, gender equity and communication. Football is the top sport in Bolivia and steps are being taken to integrate girls into the sport. There are approximately 40 children currently training at a football club on a Monday and Thursday in the afternoon, who need extra coaching.

There are two additional community-based activities for children from impoverished families living in Mallasa where sports coaching is much needed. The day care centre for very young children seeks to incorporate a number of physical and sports activities into its program. An after school club for children aged 10-11 also benefits from the addition of structured sports activities. alongside sport, culture and international relation lessons run twice a week with children aged13 - 16. The idea is to develop their English as well as work on a cultural exchange between the students and the volunteers. A truly great way to learn more about the Bolivian people.
