Is volunteering as a teenage football coach in Ghana right for me?

If you are a teenager who loves sport and working with children, then coaching football in Ghana is for you!


You don’t need to be an experienced football player to join. All you need is an interest in sports and a willingness to learn. Professional football coaches will teach you everything you need to know, and our staff are also there to help you if you need it. 


You’ll gain plenty of practical coaching experience in Ghana. This will stand you in good stead if you’re looking to pursue a career in sports coaching or as a physical education teacher in the future.


This High School Special runs over fixed dates during the summer holidays. Your Projects Abroad supervisors will be there to guide and support you every step of the way.

Projects Abroad volunteers taking part in football coaching for high school students in Ghana lead a ball skills practice session with a young team.

These are the tasks you’ll focus on during your project:


Learn coaching skills from professional football coaches


Learning the proper training techniques and strategies are key to being a good football coach. Each day, you’ll join a training session with professional coaches who will teach you various aspects of the game. You’ll learn game rules, effective warm-up and cool-down exercises, and match preparation. On top of this, you’ll also learn basic first aid and how to coach different ages groups.


Prepare football training sessions


Alongside professional coaches, you’ll help plan the next day’s football sessions. This will include effective warm-ups that help avoid injury and fitness activities that improve the strength and stamina of players. You’ll also assist with organising and running friendly matches where they can practise against one another.


Help improve the skills and techniques of young football players


Every training session is an opportunity to develop the skills of the children who attend the football club. If you show show enthusiasm and confidence, they’ll follow your lead and instruction. This training will help them improve their:


  • Footwork
  • Ball control
  • Passing skills
  • Overall technique


The more they practise, the better they will play together as a team.


Referee at football games and provide match feedback


After two-weeks of preparing your teams, you’ll be able to show off their improved skills at a local tournament. You’ll may even be able to put your football knowledge to the test by refereeing at the game. You’ll need to keep a close eye on your players, because once the game is over, you’ll provide constructive feedback to each of them. You can share your observations with them and give them advice on where they can improve.


Where in Ghana will I be volunteering?

Accra

As a volunteer, you’ll be based in the thriving capital city of Accra.


The city is home to over 2.7 million people. The streets are constantly buzzing with people going about their daily lives. As a prosperous trading centre and cosmopolitan city, Accra is the perfect place to start your journey into West Africa.


You’ll work at a long-established football club. The focus here is to develop a competitive youth team. The club aims to train football players that win league titles, secure university scholarships, and play professionally on a global level.

What are the aims and impact of this Football Project?

The aim of our Football High School Special in Ghana is to help young boys from disadvantaged areas improve their football skills. Playing football also helps them develop their confidence while having fun getting fit at the same time.


Ghanaians are hugely passionate about football and manage to play the game whenever they have a free moment.


Through regular football coaching and giving the boys a chance to play competitive matches, you’ll contribute to the development of their football skills and techniques. Our goal is to build a team of highly skilled football players that are able to secure scholarships as a result of their athletic ability. We hope to see them play professional football for some of the best football leagues in the world!


Join us in Ghana and work with other teenagers and local coaches to help disadvantaged children develop their football skills.

Vi mäter resultatet av vårt arbete varje år

Varje år deltar tusentals ungdomsvolontärer på våra projekt runt om i världen. Under deras tid utomlands bidrar de till att göra en långsiktig positiv skillnad i de samhällen där de arbetar. För att visa vilket resultat deras hårda arbete har, sammanställer vi varje år en rapport som heter High School Specials Impact repor.

För mer information om den insats våra ungdomsvolontär gjort under året, läs vår senaste rapport.


Mat och boende

Du kommer bo hos en värdfamilj i Accra, Akuapem Hills eller Cape Coast. Din värdfamilj kommer välkomna dig som en familjemedlem till deras hem. De kommer lära dig mer om deras traditioner och om den lokala kulturen. Vi tror att det här är det bästa sättet att verkligen lära känna kulturen i ett nytt land. Du kommer få en unik upplevelse av Ghana.

Vi försöker alltid placera våra ungdomsvolontärer så att de delar rum med en annan Projects Abroad volontär eller praktikant, av samma ålder och kön. Ditt rum kommer vara enkelt men bekvämt, rent och säkert.

Din projektavgift inkluderar tre måltider om dagen.

Läs mer om våra boenden.

Din säkerhet är vår första prioritet. Vi har många processer och system på plats för att se till att du som ungdomsvolontär har all extra hjälp och support som du behöver. Vår egen Projects Abroad personal finns alltid med dig och de andra ungdomsvolontärerna, oavsett tid på dygnet eller dag i veckan. De ser till att du trivs i ditt boende och känner dig hemma på din projektplacering. Om du skulle stöta på något problem, finns vår personal alltid där för att hjälpa dig.
