Sports form an integral part of local communities and teams often foster a sense of family and identity. Kenyans are sports mad, particularly for football (soccer), and many dreams of becoming the next star. Unfortunately, proper coaching is often lacking, but with little support, young people can not only develop their talents, but they can also gain a heightened sense of community.

What will you be doing?

As a volunteer on our Kenya sports program, you will engage in two primary activities: helping with sports education in a local school, and assisting a community team with training and coaching. Your role in the school will often concentrate on assisting a local teacher with sports and PE lessons, helping to engage the next generation in sport.

Your second role as a volunteer sports coach in Kenya will revolve around helping out a more experienced sports team. Many local football teams meet up for afternoon or evening sessions and are often desperate for a little coaching or help. Even if you are not a professional coach your willingness to get stuck in will be of great benefit, and training sessions are always great fun! Our work with these teams also has a more serious side. Many are composed of young men, often without jobs or the prospect of getting one. Working with these vulnerable groups is vital for keeping them motivated, and sport offers a fantastic structured environment, often creating a valuable sense of community identity.
