Coaching for Hope: Voluntary Football Coaching Overseas

Coaching for Hope sounds like a really exciting initiative. They run volunteer football-based programmes in Africa and now India. From their website:

“Coaching for Hope is an innovative programme which uses football to create better futures for young people in West and Southern Africa. We’re part of the international volunteering and development charity, Skillshare International.

We tap into the global passion for football and organise coaching courses where professional coaches from the UK train local youth workers to recognised FA standards. At the same time, the local coaches learn how to deliver HIV awareness and life skills sessions to young people in their communities.

Once the UK coaches leave, our programme staff provide ongoing support to the graduates.  This means they can deliver Coaching for Hope sessions and develop training initiatives of their own.”

Lincoln City FC Sport & Education Trust are looking to recruit three Trainee Community Organisers to work in three specific areas of the City of Lincoln. The Community Organiser programme is run by Locality who in turn work with local organisations to deliver the programme.
