Description:

This project takes place in three countries - Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa.
Soccer is a very special sport since it crosses all the boundaries of language, culture and geography. While almost everyone on this planet knows of, plays or has watched others play soccer, aside from goals scored and long-standing team rivalries, rarely do we hear about the more important value and ability of this and other sports to effect positive social change. This initiative aims to utilize “soccer power and influence” to keep young men and women engaged meaningfully in the community and increase their ability to deal with various challenges affecting them including poverty, drug addiction, HIV/AIDS endemic, etc.

Volunteers are expected to participate in the following activities:
• Development of young players' basic skills and techniques. This will include coordinating coaching sessions around topics such as development of ball control, accurate passing, keeping possession, game tactics, and moving into space
• Assist to plan match strategies and take practice games
• Assist in team selection and to be 'on the bench' for weekend or evening matches
• Organize the final competitions and awarding.
• Use sports to increase awareness on various challenges affecting young people such as unemployment

Project dates: November 1 - November 30, 2019

Qualifications:

Volunteers are expected to be open minded, ready to interact with other people of different cultural backgrounds; positive and willing to share their experiences; flexible to live/stay in simple living conditions and eat local food.


Training:

There will be an orientation meeting at the beginning of the project.


Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
