Jake's Volunteer Coaching Trip 2 Africa

"Sport has the power to change the world... the power to inspire... the power to unite people in a way that little else can."

- Nelson Mandela

This summer I will be travelling to South Africa to coach Football (soccer) to disadvantaged children.  Sporting Opportunities, a non-profit organization, supplies the platform for college students like myself to share our passions for both the sport and working with children. For five weeks, I will work with other volunteers to organize coaching sessions and sports matches in the local community, giving children and young athletes the chance to play and be coached in the sports they love.

Your donations will help cover the cost of new equipment and training for the villages that we will visit.  In addition, it will help me pay for everyday living expenses and air travel from Boston to Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
