There’s a huge amount of enthusiasm for sport in Ghana, and by helping to provide structure around games in schools, fun-loving volunteers can bring a whole lot of joy to students. Sport has the added benefit of being an excellent platform for teaching students about teamwork, sportsmanship, health and discipline while also enhancing their alertness, improving coordination and developing their self-confidence.

Sports Teaching volunteer work varies but usually includes:

  • Setting up and running physical activities
  • Playing games
  • Teaching new sports
  • Coaching and mentoring students

Football/soccer is a popular sport in Ghana, but when you volunteer to teach sport you’re encouraged to introduce new sports and games from home. You may need to bring any special equipment with you, as it may not be available for purchase in Ghana.

Please note the school year is broken up into three terms, with four-week breaks in between. Because volunteers assist children in schools, if you apply for the Sports Teaching project during these holiday breaks, it will be unavailable. Instead, you can work with school directors and placement staff on school holiday workshops. These often include fun and physical activities that you will be able to lead in English.
