Awkwaaba! Ghana welcomes volunteers with a genuine passion for sport, who are looking to do something worthwhile with their time abroad.
Head to Accra in Ghana to teach sport to enthusiastic children and young people, who attend local clubs, schools or sport academies in the city. If you have previous coaching experience, you could even take part in our football internship or volunteer with national teams.
The sports you can get involved in are:
You will coach for 3-4 hours a day, Monday to Friday. You will get the opportunity to work with other dedicated coaches and to meet other amazing volunteers. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved with local matches and to improve your own skills too!
The project is connected to a local charity, dedicated to providing football coaching and education for talented young people. All volunteers will get a chance to get involved in this element of the project and those with coaching experience can even coach these talented young men – a phenomenal opportunity.
You will live in shared volunteer accommodation in Teshie Nungua, close to amenities and the beach! The accommodation has a gated wall surrounding it, which is guarded at all times. There are single sex, dormitory-style bedrooms, western bathrooms and plenty of communal areas to relax in – including a swimming pool.
