What you will be doing? During your volunteer placement, you will be working with the academy managers and the coach. Most activities are teaching during school sports lessons and after school academy football training. School sports lessons are held during assigned class periods and academy training with Coach dodu start from 3:30pm onwards at the Obomeng Park. There are other training sessions in the morning which volunteers can be involved. The activities are weekend football matches, joint training and seasonal kicking off tournament by our Partners. All events are open for volunteer involvement. What we expect from Volunteers: As an organization that thrives on volunteer placement, we always appreciate people who have the intention to join our volunteer program and make a change or introduce new skills and integrity. We stick to goals of integrity and knowledge to help sustain our operations. With this we expect volunteers to exhibit enthusiasm and great passion in all activities with our team. Volunteers are not mandated to bring along sports products as donations but the lack of more dynamic training tools and skills development materials makes it difficult for volunteers to involve players in related activities. It's only nice to get something for the lads. Things that are mostly donated during volunteer placement are football, blazers, jerseys, boots, football and other things volunteers want to share with the academy.
Who do you need?
We will appreciate to have volunteers who are enthusiastic about academy football development and also community development. Our nonprofit is always ready to discuss what the volunteer want to explore . We are sure of your impact when you sign up to volunteer with Okwawu City Soccer Academy
