Description

Engage school children in a range of physical activities that incorporate popular sports of the island and teaching new ones. You will need to be self-motivated and flexible as there is no set structure for this project. It is important that volunteers are also comfortable working with children, whilst being able to maintain discipline in groups. Schools tend to have limited resources and access to sporting equipment so you will also need to be creative.

Volunteers will be teaching various sports, outdoor games, and exercises. It may be up to you to create 2-4 hours per day teaching lessons and or organizing sports sessions within local schools with students aged between 5 and 12 years old

A volunteer's aim is to:
-Promote physical activity through games and sports
-Develop interactive lessons that keep children active and engaged
-Promote healthier lifestyles and the importance on physical activity
