Football and Sports Volunteer in Africa


Art in Tanzania is developing youth football, assisting talent development of a Football Academy jointly with its partners.


Football is the national sport in Tanzania. There is enormous potential for young talented girls and boys. However, it is hard to produce professional football players due to their low capacities.

Art in Tanzania Football Development program is a joint effort with our partners, the Briessfull Stars Organisation, of retired top Tanzanian football professionals.

Part of the financing comes from 7Elity Academy from Utah, USA, having branches in the UK and South Africa connected to top world football clubs.

We look for interns and volunteers to join and assist in coaching, ball, and physical training activities. Also, advocate for young players about good nutrition, hygiene, and other public health issues.

Participants can also assist in the village and school sports activities.

We use our social media pages for advocacy work, and our Facebook pages have more than 50K followers.

The volunteering outcome is to learn to use your studies and experience to work in developing country conditions.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Your program can be from 2 weeks to 12 months.

The placement starting dates are flexible.

Academic-level team leaders are daily supervising your internship.

We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well with your tasks.

We can take students in all year round as all programs are ongoing.

Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

You can also conduct the thesis and related tasks along with your internship placement.

The typical morning tasks include practical fieldwork in the schools and communities, and afternoons are for planning, reporting, and social media visibility functions.
