Our international volunteering projects in Africa offer students a wonderful opportunity to add value to their university education, enhance their global awareness and develop their leadership, teaching and coaching skills.
Each year, student coaches from the Football Club travel to Zambia and South Africa as part of the University’s international volunteer programmes.
Both projects present students with an incredible opportunity to experience African culture first hand, with our volunteer coaches spending four to eight weeks helping deliver PE sessions, sport specific coaching and classroom based sessions in various schools and compounds.
More information can be found online by visiting the Volunteering & Coaching Academy pages of the Saints Sport website. To register your interest in volunteering on either of our volunteering projects please contact Claire Scott (Sports Development Manager):
