If you have love to coach sports and a little sporting ability, then you could play an important part in the personal development of young Ghanaian men and women who are interested in sports and fitness. Our voluntary sports coaching projects allow the volunteer opportunities to soccer (or football as we call it here), Basketball, Net-ball and other creative physical activities. AEO believe that sport is a powerful tool to improve education, raise health awareness and build life-skills in people.

When volunteering on this project, you will be using AEO Sports Teaching as a platform to instruct the students about working as a team, bringing the best out of the players, and developing their self-confidence.  At the same time, students will have the opportunity to practice their English and create meaningful connections with international volunteers. This project is open to all volunteers, and previous AEO experience is not a prerequisite.

Volunteers are also entitle organize match competitions to raise awareness on the essential need for one to support sporting activities which generate income and also unearth talents which might be playing or coaching for the big clubs across the world



We work on a level of transparency, tendency in both the rural and urban sector.Our Sport Development project operates in about 30 minutes to an hour by car from your host homes.

As a volunteer on the AEO Sports Teaching project in Ghana, you will be working with both junior and senior high students to develop their interest. Therefore, volunteers work alongside with permanent staff at their placement of school or sometimes coaches alone.

In addition to the physical benefits of participating in a sport like AEO, this project helps in developing mental discipline, as well as enhancing alertness and coordination among the students you will be working with. 

This project is well suited to individuals with a love of sport and real enthusiasm for supporting youth development and working with young people.
