This trip takes you on an incredible journey across Cambodia, giving you a chance to experience the magic of South East Asia while taking part in an exciting sports volunteering program to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children.
You’ll be supporting our local partners to achieve their goal of providing much needed after school activities to local children who are at risk. You will help these kids develop valuable life skills through your role as a mentor and/or sports coach. Bring fun to the daily lives of these vulnerable children and get involved in sports coaching, games and activities and health education initiatives. You could also have the opportunity to get hands on and help to refurbish the learning centres or sports fields. This 3 week experience promises to be life changing, you might think you are going there to teach, but you’ll find you will learn just as much!
