This programme is for volunteers interns and aspiring coaches, through our grassroots projects they will use sport as a vehicle for combating prevalent social issues in some of St. Lucia’s most disadvantaged communities. Volunteers will work within schools and communities tackling issues such as gang culture and childhood obesity through sport.
Coaches will work with children (aged 4-12), adolescents (13-17) and senior teams.
Aims & Objectives
The overall aim of our grassroots projects is to equip all children in the region with the means to play and enjoy sport and reap the obvious health and developmental benefits. Our volunteers will achieve this by providing sessions for our grassroot and school of excellence projects, tackling the most prevalent issues facing the region’s youth, while improving sport in the Caribbean holistically.
