Sport for Development
Changing lives through the power of sport
Travel Teacher’s Sport for Development programme uses sport as a tool to address challenging developmental issues facing various global populations. Sport, in particularly football is a passion shared by men and woman across the world. It is a force for physical well-being and social empowerment as well as being an engine for equality.
This programme unites sports enthusiasts in order to promote teamwork, and inspire positive social change in the areas of education, health, and wellness. This programme offers a unique opportunity for intercultural learning, travel and participation in sport.
We provide children and adults in our partner communities the opportunity to hone their sports skills through participation in organised and competitive sport while giving sporting enthusiasts a chance to bond in an unfamiliar setting, open their hearts and minds to a new culture, and gain global perspective.
Such a unique experience. You meet such amazing people and see the purest side of the world.
Get active and see a new part of the world
Our programme aims to excite and enlighten you as you explore your boundaries. You will travel from place to place, exploring remote communities whilst expanding opportunities for participation in sport. The communities we work in often struggle to prioritise sports and to supervise games. You can help us change this.
Working alongside local professionals and Travel Teacher staff, as well as fellow team members, you’ll spend time supervising and participating in organised sport, promoting social integration and encouraging active lifestyles. You don’t need any formal qualifications, just the desire to give your time and passion.
Whether you’re organising a tournament or just having a kick-around, there will be someone skilled to help make sure you deliver your sessions safely and in a way that supports the young people and community members you are working with.
No programme is complete without adventure, each day you will undertake exploration that sparks a passion, inspires a sense of wonder and enriches understanding, all exclusively in authentic, non-tourist communities. You will creating lasting friendships and lifelong memories along the way.
You don’t need to be an experienced sports player to join. All you need is an interest in sports and a willingness to participate.
