Join this program to be primarily responsible to organize, supervise and execute the sports program at the schools. You’ll also be expected to manage the online social media regarding this program, obtain promotional material for marketing purposes (photos etc), organize fundraising activities and further develop the sports curriculum.

This program is a partnership with United Through Sport Thailand, an organization developing valuable sports coaching and health care sessions for children in Thailand.

At these schools we run a Multi-Sports Coaching project that adds an essential element to the current sports and health curriculum for these children. This program gives the children the opportunity to be more involved with sports, as there is currently just one hour a week in the existing curriculum, and to introduce new sports to the children that they would otherwise not likely to get involved in.

During the sports sessions, our goal is to give the children more than just sports training. We use direct sports coaching to improve the health of the children, their stamina, emotional well-being and to develop their life skills; teamwork, leadership, decision making and communication.

We also give the children lessons on personal health care and other important issues such as gender equality. All elements of the program take place on the sports field in a fun and interactive way!

Using sports can aid the personal development of any child as it promotes the social interaction, knowledge and passion which are all life skills that lead to the pathway of success. Physical exercise is an important element of a healthy lifestyle.
