Sports Volunteer Program: Football Coaching, Surf, Capoeira and more

The sports volunteer program offers you the opportunity to train, compete, or just play around with underprivileged children enjoying one of the World’s favorite entertainments of all times.

At just about every corner in the World you will find the locals playing sports, but now you can be a part of the team as a volunteer in one of our sports development programs. Athletics have become vital for World’s lowest income communities, as they provide children and adolescents with recreational outlets in neighborhoods that offer young people very few options for entertainment.

Volunteers have the chance to partake in projects that are developed and operated by local organizations and their respective community councils.

"The Smiles on People’s Faces when I Bought Football Equipment"

Sports Develpment Programme in Rio
Alfonso Sports Develpment Programme in Rio

My favourite memories are the smiles on people’s faces when I bought football equipment and stationary with money raised by friends and work colleagues. I was able to raise £530 in two weeks and would highly recommend raising some money through a donation website, so you can go the extra mile with supporting the locals. - Testimonial of Afonso, Kingston University in London

Opportunities Volunteering on Sports Programs

Sports have become an essential part of poor neighborhood’s life, especially for children and adolescents. Because there are so few entertainment options for youth in low-income communities, kids unfortunately get caught up in illegal activity to pass the time. That’s why sports development has become a vital outlet for children, because it provides them with friendly competition in a safe and fun environment. And the best part is: these programs are almost always powered by volunteers.

  • Share your skills and have fun with children who really need your help
  • See how much difference you can make to the lives of some of poor children.
  • Live in beautiful places, such as Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Arusha, Buenos Aires or Mombasa and experience everything they have to offer from a local point of view. 

Skills required

By no means do you have to be a star to participate in our programs, but a little of talent goes a long way! Our projects include a variety of programs such as football (soccer), surf, capoeira, rugby, basketball, volleyball, tennis, juggling, acrobatics, and many others, Check the ones that are offered at your chosen destination.
