Affordable Sports Volunteer Abroad Projects

Are you are you looking for sports volunteer opportunities abroad to support physical education, or sports development within schools or after-school programs?

IVHQ’s affordable Sports volunteer projects enable international volunteers to play a vital role in teaching youth within communities abroad the importance of maintaining active and healthy lifestyles, while building skills in teamwork and sportsmanship.

As a volunteer teaching sports abroad, you’ll discover that the children thrive on the opportunity to learn new sports and develop their skills. To be an effective volunteer sports coach, you’re encouraged to be inventive with your lesson plans, incorporating new games and sports, teaching new skills, and organizing tournaments for the children.

Volunteer Project Review by Julie Martin

My project was amazing. I am so glad to have chosen the Surf Outreach program because I had the opportunity to surf every morning and swim with the kids in the afternoon and they also allowed us to go to school with the kids instead if we wanted to spend more time with them! I feel like I have joined another family by living with the other volunteers. I feel like I have gained many little brothers and sisters (the kids), who have shared their stories and gave me another perspective on life, and this experience will forever resonate in my actions.
