  • 1 person is interested

The main emphasis of the Physical Education Project is to get as many children and teenagers involved as possible. Offering sporting activities in this way helps youth become fitter and healthier, as well as gain a sense of belonging to a team with a common goal. This in turn has positive benefits for the wider society because the youth in the local community are engaged in meaningful activities, which give them structure and purpose.

Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN) offers overseas volunteers to volunteer as physical education volunteer teachers in schools. To work as a PE volunteer with Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN) is a great way for you to get practical coaching experience while immersing yourself in the local community. You can get involved as part of a gap year, career break, or vacation, and you don’t need previous coaching experience to join. All you need is a passion for fitness and a commitment to helping children and teenagers develop their physical abilities!

In Nepal, you will be based at either an elementary or high school where you will teach PE classes to students between the ages of 6 and 18 years old. The number of students in each class varies from about 20 to 45 students. Classes usually last 45 minutes and take place in the school’s yard or on the playing field. Classes are managed every day for two to three periods. The most popular sports in Nepal are soccer; cricket and basketball.

Typically, volunteers start off as the PE teacher’s assistant and in some instances may lead the class in an activity. With time, depending on your ability and enthusiasm, you may be given a more prominent role within the class. You can expect to get involved with a variety of activities, such as

  • Teaching soccer, cricket, volleyball, and basketball during PE classes
  • Arranging a mini sports Day for the students
  • Running core strength class

Depending on the location of your placement, you will stay with a local host family. This project offers you a real chance to use your athletic skills while interacting with Nepali teachers and students and playing a role in the local community. You will find the development you see in your students to be incredibly rewarding, while at the same time knowing that you are a part of a bigger network of volunteers and teachers who are actively making a difference in the lives of Nepal’s youth.

As we have a rehabilitation center in Kathmandu you volunteer at the center as well where you can work with disabled children. The goal here is to teach sports and physical activities that can help improve coordination, such as badminton, soccer, and core strength exercises. By working at the rehabilitation center, you can also contribute by helping out in the life skills room, and feeding area
