For those who love to work with children, Oyster has both a teaching and a sports coaching programme in South Africa. These are both incredibly social programmes as volunteers live in a shared house with access to a pool! Many students in South Africa do not have access to physical education so volunteers are greatly appreciated in the local communities. There are opportunities for volunteers to coach netball, tennis, rugby, football, circket and swimming. If you are passionate about a sport not listed, please get in touch.
