Sports Teacher in South Africa

Program Category:


Private schools in Cape Town have all invested a lot of time, money and resources in running high-quality Physical Education and sports programs – balancing this with a good academic program has produced top students on an annual basis. Public/Government schools, however, have very limited resources and funding, and even though they realize the importance of sport, they have had to invest almost everything into the academic side of things. In most cases, there is simply no budget for physical education teachers, sports coaches or the relevant equipment.

This program is designed for

Everyone with motivation

Volunteer Responsibilities
