We select volunteers of all ages, nationalities and gender to join a unique coaching expedition through nine counties in Africa for anything from 3 weeks.
We have two projects one beginning in Kenya each January for 5 months, the other beginning in Botswana each July for 10 weeks. Volunteers can join at any point for any duration on either or both projects.
- Prepare and deliver rugby sessions from grassroots to national level whilst developing your own coaching and leadership skills
- Empower local teaching staff and run coach education seminars
- Work with our extensive network of stakeholders to prepare and manage rugby tournament days
- Experience Africa close up and first-hand as we travel from country to county overland - its people, landscapes, culture and history
- Be inspired by viewing our current videos of the 2016 project:
You don't need to be a high-level rugby coach! We welcome applications from great people with the right attitude, an interest in sport and in particular, rugby and a desire to truly make a difference to young people's lives in Africa. Any coaching training or teaching experience is obviously an added advantage.
The 2017 project is full but we are happy to receive applications for our 'Reserves Bench' (waiting list).
Circumstances can occasionally alter for places already confirmed so if you are flexible enough to be on our Reserves Bench, don't hesitate to apply!
