Part time volunteering

We are offering volunteers the opportunity to participate in a Sports Development Program in the Makhaza neighbourhood in the township of Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

This is a unique experience for open-minded, international volunteers to learn more about South African culture, issues and local people while playing sports!

What to bring : Sports clothes and shoes, water, sun cream and lots of energy !

Kickstart will provide sports equipment such as soccer balls, basketballs, vests, etc.
The sports project will be held at the community centre in Khayelitsha, which has indoor and outdoor facilities. We expect the kids who attend this program to be between the ages of 8 and 14 years old.
The more volunteers we have, the more children we will attract to our Sports Development Program thereby making it a great success !
We offer soccer, basketball or netball. No teaching experience is required nor does the volunteer need to be particularly good at any of these sports.

We believe it will be an enriching time for everyone and both the volunteer and the kids will gain real insight into each other’s cultures and ways of living...
We hope that this experience will stay in our volunteers’ minds long after they have left South Africa.

The next program starts in January 2010 and will be for 4 weeks.
It runs once a week on Wednesday or Saturday afternoon.

Please contact us directly for prices and more details!
